Foster Carer's Support to one another

We are delighted to announce the launch of our carer to carer support blog on our website. All  foster carer's can use their private logon details to access the 'snippets of experience' blogs written by other foster carer's.  As we all know fostering is not easy & we hope this informal support will help our foster carers.
