Sources of support
Being a foster carer can be very stressful and the levels of support for foster carers provided by fostering services can vary. But you can find support in other ways such as from other foster carers in our online community, or in a local foster care association. You can also ring our advice lines across the UK, or ask your fostering service to provide independent support through the Fostering Network.
Members of the Fostering Network log in here for access to peer to peer support in our online community.
