Helping children to make a positive contribution
Our dynamic and enthusiastic team of children's resource workers work directly with children and young people to help them develop a strong sense of self and belonging in their placements.
They offer focussed work with children and young people completing life story work, identity work, safe care work, wishes and feelings work, preparation for adoption and moving on, as well as mentoring and targeted education support.
“Foster carers provide excellent support for young people to achieve their dreams and grow into ambitious, confident and independent young adults in charge of the choices they make.”
Manchester Ofsted Report, 2011
Children and young people develop in confidence and self-esteem, which leads to greater stability in placement.
