Fostering involves everyone that lives at home, not just the adult foster carers but their children and it is really important that everyone works together to make it a good experience. Compass Fostering understands how important it is for young people within fostering households to be part of fostering and we want you to feel fully involved.
We offer support, fun days out and training as well as the chance to join our participation groups for young people in fostering families. This is a friendly, lively group who meet regularly throughout the year to discuss issues and share ideas and experiences. They also have regular days out having visited London Zoo, Chessington World of Adventures, the Houses of Parliament and even had a personal meeting with ‘McFly’.
It is not always easy to share your family, your things or your friends, but through fostering you will be giving another child or young person a real chance to enjoy life – you may find that being part of a fostering family can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can ever have!
Compass Fostering have three guides giving information for children and young people of differing ages. They inform children and young people who are coming into a placement with Compass Fostering about the agency and cover lots of different things such as routines, getting on with foster families, social workers and getting problems sorted.
