Fostering Together: Resources to support Sons and Daughters of Foster Carers
These resources have been developed by Wanslea Family Services with the help of the research team at Edith Cowan University. They are evidenced based tools to help staff and foster carers assist biological children to make sense of fostering. They are intended to be used in assessment and then can continue to be used during the fostering journey and at the different stages of placement.
The resources comprise:
I live here too – two interactive books with cards, for children:
‘Rosie’s story’ - for 5 – 10 year olds
‘Jay’s story’ - for 11 – 14 year olds
Fostering Together – A guide to supporting children of foster carers - Booklet for foster carers and service providers Fostering together- Biological children of foster cares speak up. DVD - children’s views on fostering.
