What your family and friends can expect

We recommend you speak to your close family and friends about fostering before you start your application, to ensure they support you.

Some advice for birth children in the family:

Be ready for change. Fostering will impact on your family and the dynamics might change a bit. If you don’t feel happy you need to talk to your parents and supervising social worker. Birth children are vital for placement success so remember how important you are!
