Fostering in a digital world: a common sense guide
Fostering in a Digital World: a common sense guide
Fostered children deserve to live normal lives, but how can we balance this with keeping them as safe as possible in an increasingly digital world?
Fostering in a Digital World: a common sense guide provides foster carers and other professionals with essential information and tools to enable fostered children to benefit from using laptops, gaming consoles, tablets and mobile phones, while managing risk sensibly and effectively.
The guide includes clear, relevant advice on:
- the growth of digital technologies and online safety, including social networking, for fostered children
- understanding and managing the risks, including grooming, cyber-bullying and gaming
- what you need to be aware of as the digital world evolves.
There are also ‘What you can do’ checklists, interactive online templates, signposts to other useful resources, and a handy jargon buster.
“The guide is excellent. It is accurate, balanced and honest, with common sense tips on how to discuss what can be very sensitive issues”.
- Gareth Davies, social care professional.
