Have you considered fostering?
Could you open your home up to a parent and child for a short term to give them help and support?
Plymouth Foster Carers, Rachel & Hamish, do exactly that and tell us about it in the video below.
Parent & Child Fostering can be very challenging but also very rewarding.
In this video Rachel tells us how “I really like it, because we like people…” she went on to say that “…if you want to work with just kids, probably not the right thing…” but that people who like helping other people will really enjoy it.
Hamish told us that “...you need to be honest with yourself…” and “…although the placement isn’t long term, if it works out it will be long term for the parent and child…“
They both said they would encourage foster carers to try it.
