Foster carer handbook


This handbook is a source of helpful information, guidance and advice for our foster carers. It is intended to be used together with our existing policies and it is not intended to replace the support and advice available from Child Care Social Workers and Family Placement Social Workers.


A sample of our foster carers reviewed the updated draft document.
