Principles of promoting health and wellbeing
- It is important that foster carers understand their responsibilities around health care, medical treatment and consent so that they can support a child’s physical, mental, and emotional health.
- Fostered children have a right to good health; all the professionals working with them have a responsibility to promote and support this while recognising that it is the foster carer who can make the biggest impact on the child’s experiences and environment.
