Michelle shares her experience of foster care to highlight Foster Care Fortnight.
Includem support children and young people who are currently being fostered, particularly if the relationship between the carer and the young person is at breaking point.
To recognise Foster Care Fortnight, Michelle* – one of the young people we support – wanted to share her experience of being looked after in foster care.
She tells us about the positive and negatives about her time in foster care and how Includem supported her by providing face-to-face support when she needed it most.
Foster Care Fortnight highlights the commitment of foster carers across the UK. It aims to raise awareness of the lack of foster families to meet the needs of children and young people across the country.
