What do we mean by this? Do we mean, living in the same road; the same city, the same home? For children placed in care the answer is… Hugely important. Foster carers, both local authority and other agencies play a huge role in making sure children have a safe home, a home that doesn’t change and remains a constant in their often turbulent early lives.

Tory, mum to one and constantly searching for the elusive 25th hour, writes a humorous blog about parenting amongst other things said…
As a parent of a four-year-old I can think of little more important than giving a child one place to call home. It is the centre of their world and is vital in building confidence and a sense of security from which to build their lives. Having constants in your live gives you an anchor, somewhere to return, and a sense of belonging which, along with love, has to be one of the most important things we can give a child.”
