Being a parent and child Foster Carer is by far the most rewarding and effective role I have held
Lisa in Bristol was kind enough to give us these words about her experience with fostering.
I have worked in a variety of jobs in Social Care for almost 20 years.
Being a parent and child Foster Carer is by far the most rewarding and effective role I have held.
Providing families with a comfortable, clean, calm, supportive and nurturing environment at the start their family life, gives them the chance to form healthy attachments, learn new skills and gives them the best opportunity to be a successful parent keeping families together.
It can be a challenge and very tiring, however the support and guidance given by the Fostering Foundation is integral to the many successful outcomes I have been involved with.
To receive positive messages and the numerous photos from the families who have stayed with us and gone on to live successfully in the community makes all the challenges worthwhile.
