National Fostering Group is brilliant. My supervising social worker is only ever a text or an email away and I have ongoing training which helps me develop the skills and knowledge I need.

And then there is the support from the other carers, too. As a single person, you don’t have someone at home saying well done so it’s great when you meet up with other foster carers and realise you’re doing really well.
