Support for Children in Foster Care

If you are a foster carer, there is plenty of help and support available to the child or children you are fostering.

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 fostering@hullcc.gov.uk and ask to speak to their fostering social worker.
