How Does Fostering Affect My Family?
Your fostering will touch the whole of your community; the people close to you will be most affected, as well as being your strongest sources of support.
If you have children, we are interested in their happiness. We run sessions to help your children understand how to live happily alongside a fostered child, and support them to let off steam and have fun.
We understand your need to be together as a family, to recharge your batteries and reconnect with each other, outside of fostering. Chrysalis will give you up to 3 weeks paid planned breaks each year, so you can have some special time for yourselves.
We will also welcome your friends and supporters at some foster carer training events, so that they can understand and reinforce your fostering approach.
