This month we will be showing our support for Fostering February by starting conversations about fostering both online and offline!
Fostering February is a month dedicated to raising awareness about the facts of becoming a foster carer and aims to dispel some of the myths and misconceptions which surround it.
It gives an invaluable opportunity to people who are considering becoming a foster carer to have their questions and concerns addressed.
Have you ever thought about becoming a foster carer, but immediately ruled it out?
Do any of these statements sound familiar?
There are lots of different family living situations that can allow for a foster child which are often assumed can’t. Be sure to find out before making assumptions. For example, your sexual orientation won’t affect whether you are allowed to become a foster carer. The most important factor is that the children feel safe and loved and importantly are properly looked after.
Whether you are considering becoming a foster carer or just want to help raise awareness, there are plenty of ways for you to get involved with Fostering February 2018. Take a look at their website here.
