Handbooks and guides
These guides are for approved foster carers.
Foster Carer's Handbook
We created the Foster Carers Handbook as a quick reference guide. We hope it will answer some of the most frequently asked questions and help you understand some of the requirements of being a foster carer.
The handbook can never be all-encompassing, but having had feedback and consulted with foster carers, we hope the most important issues are covered.
If you need information that's not in this handbook, please contact the fostering team.

You can download our guides to living with another family to give to your foster children when they are first placed with you.
