Looking after a fostered child

Looking after a fostered child
Looking after a fostered child is a complex and challenging role. Every child has his or her own particular set of needs and the task of a foster carer is to meet those needs and then help that child to aim high and to achieve his or her full potential.

Contact arrangements involve the child or young person and their family members. They can include extended family and friends.

Delegated authority is the process that enables foster carers to make everyday decisions about the young people they care for.

Whatever the reason a fostering placement may come to an end, foster carers will experience a range of emotions when a child leaves their home.
