The relationship between siblings is one of the most important relationships within a child’s life, and we work hard to support and promote this relationship where possible.
Recently we had a young person join us, following a separation of his siblings and entering care for the first time. A few months later, we were asked to see if it was possible for the young person’s sibling to move in with our foster carer and enable the two children to live together.
Following a visit, an overnight stay and time spent within the household, we were able to assess if this was a positive and suitable option, whilst considering the needs of everyone in the household. It is with a very happy heart, that following this we were able to support this request and following a successful transition that the two siblings are now able to live together.
Promoting this relationship is key and statistically will provide a higher chance of better outcomes for both children. They will be able to spend their childhood together, enjoy life experiences and build memories in partnership with one another.
