The Teenagers in Foster Care Handbook has just been launched by the Rees Centre for Research in Fostering and Education.

This publication came out of a seminar series Teenagers in Foster Care, funded by an ESRC (The Economic and Social Research Council) grant to the Rees Centre and the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, University of Oxford, together with the social work departments of the University of Bedfordshire and the University of Gothenburg in Sweden.

This handbook is for foster carers and has been jointly written by foster carers and researchers based on the seminar series.

Teenagers in Foster Care is a concise handbook, containing a summary of key points from the seminar series, with useful top tips and reflective discussion questions.

To request free hard copies please send an email to with your address or click here to view a copy of the pdf.
