Although different parts of the UK have different guidance, we are all slowly coming to terms with moving out of lockdown into a ‘new normal’. Children and young people in foster care face additional issues returning to school, college and normality in general. We have developed two online sessions for foster carers to explore ways to help children and young people through the process, while taking care of themselves and getting the support they need.
