If all household family members are involved in the decision-making process and are supportive of the decision to foster a child, you will reduce the potential impact.
Ensure quality time is spent with existing and new family members, individually and altogether, to build relationships and bond.
Foster placements are thoroughly planned out so all parties are happy with the decision, however supervising social workers are on hand to solve any problems that may arise for your new or existing family.
Families may consider fostering if children living at home are over the age of 12, although we would be happy to assess your specific situation if you get in touch.
Read reviews from experienced foster parents and the young people in our care about how their fostering placement has impacted their lives, with the support from Mosaic Foster Care.
