By Your Side Foster Carer and Adopter Guide

Support for children moving families

‘The Foster Carer and Adopter Guide is directed towards foster carers and prospective adopters (as well as their supporting professionals) and provides a detailed description of the By Your Side model. The guide outlines the key principles of the model, describes what the direct work involves and what foster carers and adopters can do to help the child. It includes examples and scenarios throughout and dedicates a whole section on helpful ways to talk in everyday situations. The guide is written in an accessible and clear way and can be used as a structured approach to support a transition or can be adapted to suit the situation.’

More information about the By Your Side model can be found on the website.
