Sons and Daughters Month for fostering services

Show your appreciation

The children of foster carers play an essential role in welcoming children and young people in care into their families and are vital to successful fostering. Most sons and daughters of foster carers report that they are happy being part of a fostering family, but expectations on them are high and there can be challenges to overcome.

Sons and Daughters Month

Each October, The Fostering Network raises awareness of the important role children of foster carers play in a fostering household. We highlight how much they do for children and young people in care and how vital they are to successful fostering.

Sons and daughters

Why are sons and daughters so important?

Becoming a foster carer will have a huge impact on everyone living at home and everyone in the household needs to be committed to fostering.

The whole family will be involved in the decision to foster and the assessment process, and training is available for sons and daughters of foster carers. Many fostering services have their own support groups and provide sons and daughters with training and advice.
