Children who foster

Carmarthenshire’s Fostering Service recognise that it’s not only the grown-ups in the family who foster.  Children who foster are a huge part of making our placements such successes and their role cannot be underestimated.  Quite often it’s the sons and daughters of our foster carers who make placements work and their ability to support their foster siblings can make a huge difference to children who are looked after.

Gwen is a young person who fosters and she, along with her sisters have supported many children over the years. She totally embraces fostering and we are lucky to have children and young people like her.

Gwen has let us take a peek into her life at home.  This is an article from Thrive magazine which is the publication by The Fostering Network who helps us support young people who foster and Gwen shared her honest account of what it’s like to foster

Thanks Gwen!
