Routine is something many parents strive to offer their children right from the day they come into the world.

Establishing routine and maintaining boundaries for children in their care are areas we support and encourage our foster carers to develop too. When lockdown occurred in March and schools were closed, normality, as far as routine was concerned, ceased for most children and young people. For parents too, the usual routines ceased as mums, dads, and carers, started homeschooling alongside parenting and for a great many all whilst working either from home, or on the frontline too.

What we look for in a foster carer

What we look for in a foster carer

The responsibility for our own health and wellbeing to a certain extent, belongs to us all. However we understand that our culture and ethos influences levels of wellbeing and feeling of being supported. At To the Moon and Back Foster Care, we believe that there are some key factors that can determine whether our foster carers have a positive or a negative relationship with our organisation. These include:

  • The knowledge that we are available and committed to supporting our foster carers at all times.

  • The level of confidence felt by our carers as a result of their knowledge and skills, built as a result of the development we provide, especially in the subject of trauma informed care.
