Foster Care Fortnight has begun and TACT will be celebrating the power of fostering in the coming days with blogs from our amazing and inspirational foster carers and news from our well known supporters. So watch this space!
And today marks the publication of Welcome to Fostering – A guide to Becoming and Being a Foster Carer which combines advice from foster carers and professionals with the real-life experiences of foster children. The book explains the fostering process step by step and will answer questions such as: ‘What are the challenges and rewards? Is fostering really for me?’
Welcome to Fostering has been co-edited by Andy Elvin, CEO of fostering and adoption charity TACT (The Adolescent and Children’s Trust) and Martin Barrow, formerly news editor of the Times and a foster carer himself.
Welcome to Fostering – A guide to Becoming and Being a Foster Carer, is published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, and can be ordered here
