When Ashburton Foster Carers Rachael and Shaun started their Fostering journey, they knew they would learn lots of new skills and gain lots of new experiences.

What Shaun didn’t expect was to need to learn how to straighten hair for the 12 year old in their foster family.

“It’s not a skill I’ve ever needed before or expected to need to know about” said Shaun.

The Fostering Foundation provides training for many things that help our carers with their fostering journey but we are not sure learning how to use hair straighteners has ever been included!
