What is private fostering? How is it different from being “in care”? Why are children privately fostered?
These and other questions on private fostering and what it means are covered in this new booklet for children.
It also describes how children should be looked after, what private foster carers should and shouldn’t do, how the social worker can help, and school and health matters.
At the back of the book, there are addresses and telephone numbers of useful organisations which children can contact if they experience difficulties.
Colourful, illustrated and presented in accessible and jargon-free language, this booklet provides a good introduction to private fostering, the process, and what children can expect.
