Foster Carer Handbook

Welcome to Norfolk County Council's Foster Carer Handbook.

We hope you'll find this a helpful and useful guide through the joys and challenges ahead.

While the handbook cannot cover every eventuality, it has been designed to give you an understanding of your role and tasks, the context in which you'll be working and some practical information about how you can contribute successfully to a child's welfare and development.

We hope it will complement the working relationships that you develop with all those involved with the children entrusted to our care and the training that is available.

The handbook has been published online, so that you can be sure you're reading the most up-to-date information.

However, if you do not have easy access to a computer, you can ask your supervising social worker to print you relevant chapters from the book. All the local policies and guidance have been incorporated in this handbook.

Thank you for embarking upon this vital task, helping to make a lasting difference to the lives of Norfolk's looked-after children and young people.
