Fostering will impact your children in various ways. It’s really important you talk to your children about the impact fostering may have on them. We also provide access to experienced social workers to help understand how fostering might affect your children. When undertaking the assessment to be a carer all birth children are included in the assessment and they will meet the social worker undertaking the assessment both within a family setting and also 1-1 to help your family members understand fostering and how this can impact on your family.
