Teachers who take up Fostering – Plymouth Foster Carers, Rachel & Hamish

Plymouth Fostering - Rachel & Hamish talk about Parent & Child Fostering

Plymouth Foster Carers, Rachel & Hamish tell us about their journey that took them from being Teachers to taking up Fostering.

Rachel was a music and art teacher, Hamish worked in a school for children with special needs.

Initially they cut their days to carry on teaching and fostering combined, which gave them the opportunity to spend more time with their own children, as well as helping other people’s children.

Teachers are often trained with the skills that foster carers need, giving them some of the experience and background to help with the fostering process.
