Claire and Nick: Fostering gives you a strong sense of community

Claire and Nick have been foster carers for Foster Wales for nearly 5 years.

“It’s really important that people understand how difficult some children’s lives are and how much support they can need.”

“Yes, they (children) can bring a lot of challenges, and there may be some times when you think, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do now’, but you do work it out! You don’t need to know everything, because the training that you get is excellent.”

“You do get a strong sense of community from other foster carers.”

“Children need to be in the areas that they know, they need to be able to go to their local schools, to be with their friends.”
