It’s how we do things around here

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, 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:

Relationship led support

FFoster carer support is an area debated frequently; it is regarded a measurement of an agency’s success. The levels that foster carers feel supported, determines an agency’s success. When foster carers feel happy with the service and support they receive they will tell others and we would prefer to increase our number of foster carers as result of our own carers recommendations.

We know that one of the biggest needs for our partnering local authorities is for families to care for teenagers, however despite the increasing demand, the families coming forward to foster are often anxious about fostering teenagers for fear that they will bring trouble to their door. One of our foster carers laughingly will tell you that she never wanted to foster teenagers, but having fostered two, has found it to be enlightening and much more about the individual young people and their age irrelevant. We appreciate the challenges associated with caring for teenagers but feel it is also one of the most rewarding times about parenting/fostering, because we can see the emerging adult develop.
