1800 WE CARE
Fostering is a serious commitment and one that will affect your family; particularly if you have birth children living at home.
If you’re thinking of becoming a foster carer, the question of how fostering will affect your family deserves full consideration and open discussion with every member of your household.
Deciding to become a foster carer as an adult can bring anticipation, excitement, anxiety and worry. And if you have children, all these emotions will be experienced by them as well.
Children whose parents are fostering will share their home, their parents, their siblings and their belongings with children and young people in placement.
But children who foster can play a vital role in the success or failure of foster care placements. They require support; not only from their parents, family and friends but also from their foster care agency.
At Key Assets, if you have children, they will have access to your family’s Social Worker and contact with other young people in the area who are part of a fostering family. Some areas will also have specific support groups where birth children can express the issues affecting them.
If you’re thinking of becoming a foster carer with Key Assets or you want to find out more about how fostering will affect your family, call us today on 1800 93 22 73 or enquire online.
