Fostering Fortnight 2018: Consistency

Our last but just as important quality for foster carers

You will need to be able to see things from a child’s perspective, to understand and work with the behaviours they may display and provide stable and consistent care for children who may not have experienced this before.”

All of us need some sense of consistency and stability. Those who have had a difficult period in their lives need to learn to trust and feel safe and consistency will always help with this.

We hope that these blogs over Fostering Fortnight have given you an understanding of what AFA values in their foster carers and what we see as vital for the role.
