Foster carers can change the educational achievement of a child in fostering
Fostering Hearts is a community where every child’s story matters. Our dedicated foster carers navigate the ever-changing journey of foster care, guided by comprehensive training and a heart full of love. They transform lives, one child at a time, inspired by our belief in lifelong learning. Discover their inspiring stories and the role of continuing education in shaping these narratives.
Explore the emotional journey a foster carer embarks on when saying goodbye to a child in care. Learn how to navigate feelings of loss, utilise support networks, and the notable role of a foster carer during this transition.
Fostering is a rewarding journey that requires careful evaluation of your personal circumstances. Some factors that could disqualify you from becoming a foster carer include specific criminal records, lack of space, health conditions, personal circumstances, and financial instability. However, many individuals with diverse backgrounds successfully become foster carers. To determine your eligibility, reach out to a reputable fostering agency and start a conversation about your suitability for fostering.
