Real stories

  • Mockingbird



Eman has fostered for her local council for 17 years, during which she has cared for many children.

“I am proud that I am able to care for people and treat them with respect and make a difference in their life. I am also proud that I keep in contact with all the young people who I foster. Sometimes I receive Mother’s Day cards, which means a lot to me!

Today she is a hub carer as part of the council’s Fostering Network Mockingbird Programme. It is a network based on the idea of an extended family, which works to ensure that young people and their foster carers receive even more care and support.

“I support 10 families with their children. The main thing is relationship building with the other carers and their young people so that we can all support each other. We support each other like a family, helping with things like collecting a child from school. Mockingbird helps improve stability with young people and their carers.
