Parenting Advice for Foster Carers and Adopters (PAFCA)

Parenting Advice for Foster Carers and Adopters (PAFCA) joins together the expertise of foster carers and adopters with that of professionals to improve the emotional well-being, behaviour and mental health of adopted and fostered children.

I am a Clinical Child Psychologist and I’m passionate about supporting adults who care for children traumatised by neglect and abuse.

In my experience, foster carers and adopters are very keen to understand more about the emotional worlds of their children and share what they’ve learned along the way. However it’s not an easy task and services to help are becoming tougher and tougher to access, hence PAFCA…
PAFCA works by us regularly uploading new articles, information and advice written by foster carers, adopters and professionals in related disciplines. The site works best when we get feedback from you about what you would like to see so please get in touch if you have any ideas for what you’d like to see and what you think you could contribute yourself.
