So...you might be feeling nervous, and not know much right now but that’s okay, we’ve got you covered.
We've created some handy guides for you to fill in on your own or with your foster parents. These guides will help foster families get to know you better. All you need to do is pick the right age of guide that suits you and where you live.
If there is anything you don’t understand, do ask either your foster parent or us and we’ll do all we can to help.
My parents are thinking about fostering

From why kids in care need foster homes to the role you’d play in their lives, we should be able to answer all your questions and more. Plus, there are some fun activities to do to help you learn more about fostering along the way! We hope you enjoy reading and look forward to seeing you soon.
