Throughout Sons and Daughters Month this October we will be hearing from sons and daughters of foster carers as they share their experiences of growing up in a fostering household.

Sons and Daughters Month

Each October, The Fostering Network encourages fostering services across the UK to run activities to recognise, thank and reward children and young people for the important role they play in welcoming fostered children into their families.

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.

Putting down roots for future children who foster

Oak trees were planted by sons and daughters of foster carers to celebrate their important role in fostering during Sons and Daughters Month in October

I've fallen in love with fostering - Georgia's story #SandD2015

I personally have fallen in love with fostering, it is hands down the most rewarding thing I have ever done. Helping to change a child's life for the better and give them a positive future is something that I am incredibly proud of.
