Fostering outcomes

  • Building happier futures for children and young people is at the heart of everything we do.  
  • Any child who comes under our supervision will have a care plan, this plan will set positive goals for that child’s future.  
  • Be it short or long term, we want to make a positive difference.  

There are many ways to look at fostering and the goals of Family Fostering Partners and our foster parents. There are short-term goals as well as long-term ones. The ultimate goal is to help any child and young person who might have become lost in the system to have positive outcomes in life.

What is a positive outcome? Usually, it is something that we can too easily take for granted such as being safe, being healthy, and having economic wellbeing. When a child has lived in chaos, these are not taken for granted nor are the possibilities for achieving fulfilment.

We strive to create an atmosphere where such outcomes for children become reality. This is what we consider to be the foundation to fostering. Our carers are trained in the skills that empower them to help looked after children achieve positive fostering outcomes.

There is a strong link between educational achievement and successful adulthood. For youngsters, their home environment often sets the stage for their ability to do well in school. If they have been living in an abusive home or have been subjected to neglect, they will need the safety and emotional nourishment that allows them to thrive and learn.

Of course, after such an experience, a young person may have difficulty adjusting to a foster home. For one thing, when a placement is made, it is not always possible to make immediate plans for the child's future. In a perfect world, families are kept together, and it may take some time to determine if this is possible. Not knowing where they will be next week can be stressful.

The best outcomes depend on the young people in care having the support they need. This means that we work to ensure that our foster households encourage healthy living through proper nutrition and exercise, learning economic skills such as how to manage money which they receive as an allowance, and how to enjoy social activities such as sports and music.

When a child has the chance to learn how to make good lifestyle choices, he or she can take those choices into their way of being that becomes part of the experience that will continue into adulthood.

Our goal and hope is that we have carers who are capable of providing ways for foster children to make positive advancement by daily modeling of good choices and values. When young people learn how to develop good emotional and physical habits that create a sense of wellbeing, they are able to carry this ability to adulthood. We are an independent agency and we offer professional education, training, and development.

At Family Fostering Partners, we take seriously the fact that we are entrusted with the care of vulnerable children and young people. The big question that underlines our philosophy and our values is, “If we don’t care for the future, then who else will?”
