Sons and Daughters Month

Sons and Daughters Month

Here at we’d like to say a BIG thank you to all the children of our foster carers and celebrate the important contribution they make to foster care.

Each October, The Fostering Network, and fostering services across the UK, run events and activities to recognise and reward children and young people for the important role they play in welcoming fostered children into their families and helping to ensure successful fostering placements.

Some people say that the potential impact on their birth children is one of the major barriers to becoming a foster carer.

However, children can benefit from being part of the support network offered by a fostering family to a fostered child. Seeing life from another’s perspective can be an enriching experience and can help a child learn and develop as an individual, while they may even make a lifelong friend in the process!
