Foster care stories
Emma's* fostering story began when she came to Swiis after two years in the secure system with a very high tariff (highest ever rate of reported absconding, putting herself at risk etc). She has been with her foster carers for more than one year now. She can be described as being settled and ‘age appropriate’ in her presentation and behaviour.
Recently she completed a residential week on Skye as part of her Youth Leadership course with Columba 1400. Her placing Local Authority, Columba 1400, and college all view Emma as a huge success. Her Local Authority identifies her foster placement as being crucial to her progress. Everyone is citing Emma as a positive example and highlights the role that her foster carers have played in realising her potential. She is enjoying the attention she is rightly receiving for her more positive recent exploits.
Swiis Foster Care Scotland prides itself on achieving positive outcomes for some of the most vulnerable and complex young people.
