CoramBAAF’s new book is a definitive guide to fostering in the UK. The book explores everything you need to know about fostering and what it involves, including the types of children who need to be fostered, why they need a foster home, what happens when a child moves in, and the emotional and practical realities of living together as a foster family.

It clearly sets out the steps involved in becoming a foster carer with information and advice on who to approach if you want to apply, how foster carers are selected, the training available, and relevant fees, allowances and support. The book is priced at £8.95 and will be available to purchase at the beginning of November.
