According to a report by Family Futures 80% of the UK population have one or more siblings
The relationship between siblings is often considered to be the longest and most important family connection for any child. Consequently, when a child needs foster care the relationship dynamics between siblings needs to be considered. Fostering siblings together can often aide the child’s feelings of stability, as well as helping their personal development and ability to settle into their new lives.
At To The Moon And Back we strive to keep siblings together where possible. We understand that initially being in foster care can be a traumatic experience for any child and so we aim to make the transition as easy as possible. One of the best ways we can do this, is by placing siblings together.
