Young people from Bromley give their top tips to carers!
Back in September the fostering team asked the Living in Care Council (LinCC) to contribute to the foster carers handbook. The handbook contains information about their role as carers and how they can go about supporting the young people they look after.
LinCC were asked to help create foster carer profile templates. The idea of these is that carers can use these to describe what life will be like with them and what young people can expect. As a result of this work young people meeting their carers for the first time will now be given these templates so that they have more of an idea about what lies ahead. Its hoped that by doing this young people will feel more at ease when they meet with their carer.
LinCC have also contributed to the handbook by creating a list of their top tips for carers. Some of the tips they suggested are listed below:
