All About Fostering
The Fostering Network’s advice online
Our online advice complements our telephone advice services across the UK. Current advice includes a range of resources available to support foster carers on a wide range of topics from safer caring to record keeping. While some of these topics are relevant to all foster carers, a number of them are written for foster carers in England. For foster carers in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales specific advice is available through the country’s helpline – Fosterline Scotland, Fosterline Wales and the Advice and Information Service Northern Ireland. Foster carers in England can also access our Member Helpline.
It is our intention to develop further UK-wide information and resources in the future.
Many of the resources provided here are for our members only. Log in to access these as well as peer to peer support in our online community.
