We know that at times it can be really helpful to talk to someone else that lives in a fostering family. Someone else that knows the ups and the downs and understands where you are coming from.
We run a buddy scheme to link you up with other young people whose parents foster with Fostering People.
You can contact them in whichever way you wish, e-mail, phone or social media. If you’d like to be linked with someone, all you need to do in complete the form below and we’ll do the rest. You do need your parent’s permission to participate and as such when we receive your form, we’ll give them a quick call to make sure they are happy for you to have a buddy. This isn’t normally an issue, but they are your parents and we think they should know if yor taking part. Once we’ve talked to your parents we’ll provide you and your parents with the contact details of the person you have been linked to. Then it’s over to you.
