Fostering a child in Guernsey
Seeing a child settled, secure and enjoying life is one of the
greatest rewards of fostering, especially when the child may have
experienced neglect or abuse.
As a foster carer you will have to work slowly and patiently
with any child or young person placed with you to help them come to
terms with their experiences and feelings about being separated
from their families. You will need empathy, staying power and an
ability to believe that your fostered child is capable of
overcoming adversity to reach their full potential. We understand
the challenges our foster carers face along the way and the
importance of supporting you.
We hope this website will help you decide if fostering is right
for you. Please call us for an informal discussion on 01481
