  1. 1. FOSTERING.<br />SCRIPT<br />
  2. 2. Becoming A Foster Carer<br />You can be a foster carer:<br />Whether you have your own children or not.<br />If you are single, married or living with a partner.<br />If you are in or out at work.<br />Whether you live in your own home or rent.<br />Whatever your race and religion is.<br />
  3. 3. Types Of Fostering<br />Emergency – foster carers will need to be prepared to take a child into their home at any time of the day or night and have them stay for a few days. Example of use: a single parent is taken to hospital and there is no one to look after the child then this is when they will go to a emergency foster carer until there parent is out of hospital.<br />Short term – this can mean anything from an overnight stay to a period of several months. Short term foster carers provide a temporary place to stay until the child can return home.<br />Long term – sometimes children will not be able to go back to live with their own families for a number of years/at all. Long term fostering allows the child to stay in a family were they feel safe/secure, whilst maintaining contact with their parent’s.<br />
  4. 4. Types of fostering - continued<br />Respite – also known as ‘short break’ or ‘shared care’ this covers a variety of different types of part time care. Which is were you might have a child stay for a few hours a week or a couple of weekends a month giving the child’s family/full time foster carer/s a break.<br />Parent and baby – specially trained foster carers will take both mother and baby into their home and provide them with care and support and teach them how to care for their baby.<br />
  5. 5. How is fostering different from adoption?<br />Adoption is where a new family is provided for children who can no longer live withtheir own family. <br />Adoption is the best option for a minority of children.<br />An adoption order transfers the child’s legal relationship from their birth family to the new adoptive family.<br />

  7. 7. How To Provide Care<br />To provide care for a foster child you have to provide:<br />Love , Comfort,<br />Listening , Patience,<br />Food, Clothing and Warmth.<br />To promote positive health care you have to:<br />Consult the Doctor and Hospital when necessary.<br />Consult the Dentist and Optician regularly.<br />To promote a positive view of the child’s family and background:<br />You may feel very angry with the child’s parent’s,<br />But it is still important to acknowledge the child’s feelings.<br />Allow the child to have contact with their parent’s without making the child feel that they must choose between them and you.<br />To promote education:<br />Take interest in child’s Homework, School Events, Listen to them read and Read them bedtime stories.<br />
