A young person’s guide to foster care

These six booklets are to help young people understand what foster care is. They give information about the term ‘fostering’, foster carers, social workers, contact with birth family and support available.

The booklets have been developed by particular Local Authorities, while the content is useful for all children, you may want to change the contact numbers and other details specific for the Local Authority which designed the book.

The booklets have similar content but different design and are therefore listed together.
