Welcoming a child

If you’re new to fostering, your social worker will give you advice on how best to welcome the child/young person into your home.

Every child is different and has a different story, so you may wish to start by introducing yourself by the name you’d like them to call you.

Take them on a tour of your home and show them their new bedroom.

You may give them a welcome book and include photos of your family and the house rules. Often it’s the little things that can make a big difference
