Fostering isn’t easy, it can be challenging and requires a great deal of patience and resilience. This video shares an honest account of both the struggles and the rewards that fostering brings. Featuring actors, it portrays the real-life stories of two different foster care experiences; one of teenager Carl and his carer, and the other of two young sisters (Toni and Leah) cared for by a same-sex couple. It highlights the highs and lows of being a foster carer, which can be complex, but ultimately a rewarding and fulfilling journey that makes a huge difference to the lives of young people in care.
