Sons and Daughters
October 24, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The sons and daughters of the Wessex carers are being treated to a fun afternoon at the Exeter Chiefs ground Sandy Park.
They will have a VIP tour followed by activities.
A huge thank you to The Exeter Chiefs for helping to celebrate the vital contribution our carers’ sons and daughters make.
Every October the Fostering Network runs a Sons and Daughters Month: Celebrating the Foster Family, a campaign to celebrate the significant contribution of children of foster carers to successful foster care.
Becoming a foster carer will have a huge impact on everyone living at home and everyone in the household needs to be committed to fostering.
The whole family will be involved in the decision to foster and the assessment process, and training is available for sons and daughters of foster carers. Many fostering services have their own support groups and provide sons and daughters with training and advice.
Sons and daughters have to share their parents, their toys and their friends, as well as sometimes cope with difficult and challenging behaviour. Despite these difficulties, many say that being part of a foster family has had a positive impact on them, and helped them to understand others better.
