We have a range of guides, booklets and leaflets for you to digest. Take a look here if you are starting your fostering journey or give us a call and we will be happy to help.
What is Fostering?
There are a number of different types of fostering placements available. From short-term to bridge to adoption – our helpful one-page guide will help you understand what is best for you.
Your journey to becoming a Foster Carer
As you can imagine, there are a number of hurdles to overcome before you can foster a child or young person. But with our help and this guide to the journey you will find it easy to understand.
Foster Carers Charter
Written by our own foster carers, this document shows what they expected from us – and we thought yes, this seems fair and reasonable so let’s make it Our Charter to our foster carers.
Annual Review Booklet
This booklet gives tells you all about the review we do with you each and every year. The annual review highlights your successes, identifies where we can help you further and has the input from all involved.
Statement of Purpose
The Statement of Purpose outlines how the Fostering Foundation functions as an Independent Fostering Agency. The statement is important as it states how we will act and what you can expect from us.
Fostering Network Membership
We subscribe you to the Fostering Network which will provide you with a wealth of tools to help you. They include helplines, legal protection insurance and dedicated events.
