If you are a foster carer, there is plenty of help and support available to the child or children you are fostering.
A guide for children who live with foster carers
A guide for children who live with foster carers is available to download below.
The guide explains what foster care is, what they can expect from a social worker, advice about keeping in touch with family and friends, and who to go to if they want help or support.
A child’s social worker always try to help and answer any questions about living away from home or about keeping in touch with their family.
A child can expect lots of things from their social worker including -
- being listened to and having their wishes heard and acted upon whenever possible
- coming to visit the child at your house
- being told what is happening as often as they need to hear it
- talking to other people about decisions that affect them
Children and young people can contact us at Hull fostering directly on 01482 612 800 or email email@example.com and ask to speak to their fostering social worker.
