What Do Foster Carers Do?
Apart from looking after children daily and meeting their many individual needs, foster carers come into contact and work alongside other people who play an essential part in a child’s life.
Most important amongst these, are the child’s family. Foster carers have a vital role to play in enabling contact to take place. Others would include social workers, teachers, doctors, health visitors, and occasionally members of the legal professions.
Foster carers work as part of a team, and help is always available to support you with these critical areas.
