Sons and Daughters Month

Supporting birth children of foster carers in Rotherham

Each October we join The Fostering Network in recognising, thanking and rewarding birth children and young people for the important role that they play in welcoming fostered children into their families, helping to ensure successful fostering placements.


Here at Fostering Rotherham, we’d like to say a huge “THANK YOU!” to all the children of our foster carers as we celebrate the important contributions they make.

Some potential foster carers say that the possible impact of fostering on their birth children is one of their major barriers to becoming a foster carer. However, birth children can really benefit from being part of the support network offered by a fostering family to a foster child. Seeing life from another perspective can be an enriching experience and can really help a child learn and develop as an individual; they may even make a lifelong friend in the process!


Throughout October, we will be sharing stories about our fabulous sons and daughters here at Fostering Rotherham and the amazing part they play in ensuring that our children in care feel welcome, supported and part of a loving family. #SADM20
