Real stories

  • Foster carers
Three smiling teenagers sat around a kitchen table with sandwiches on the table in front on them, there is an adult in the background with his back to the camera who looks like they are preparing food.


Foster carers

Rebecca is a foster carer for the London Borough of Havering. “I thought I could use the skills I’d learned in the hospital at home to make other people happy and to help young people to achieve their goals, so I went along to training where I met all kinds of people from different backgrounds.

“We exchanged our telephone numbers and ideas and we became friends. For someone who has never worked in this environment, it can be very scary.

“The social workers and staff are very considerate and treat you as if they have known you for a long time.

“Anyone who is a responsible adult can become a foster carer if they have a spare room and meet the requirements. I am happy I am able to give back what has been given to me in this country.”
