Alex and Matt
When we were considering to foster we thought that a mother and child placement would fit in best with our family as also have young children ourself, we passed panel in April 2018 and have passed for a mother and child placement, short term and respite. We decided to foster to make a difference.
The concerns we had when we started the process was how our child would deal with everything although we had spoken with the children before contacting FCUK, theses worries were spoken to with our Independent Social Worker who was great! She got the children a book and pens so that if they had any questions they could write them in the book and she would answer them the best she could – nothing was too much trouble for her.
I emailed FCUK a fair few times with different questions that I had and again, nothing was to much trouble for them always emailed me straight back or phoned me to give me answers to my emails. The day of panel the office staff were great made you feel a little more relaxed with their warm welcomes.
I would definitely recommend FCUK to any potential foster carers.
