Bristol Council urgently seeking foster parents for siblings

Bristol City Council's fostering and adoption agency is urgently looking for long term homes for 5 sets of siblings. If a home can't be found that will enable them to stay together, they will sadly need to be separated.

This year, alongside their regular online fostering and adoption information sessions the Home for Good team will be offering a series of special focus information sessions. This session is for anyone considering fostering or adopting whether for their immediate or long-term future and has a special focus on the challenges and joys of caring for sibling groups, which often involves longer term fostering.

Whilst there are few statistics on the number of sibling groups in foster care the numbers are high. In adoption, 40% of children waiting for adoption are part of a sibling group. Caring for siblings, whether through fostering or adoption is crucially important.

The Home for Good team will outline what that could look like and what the application process can involve. There will also be some input from people who are already caring for sibling groups and, as ever a chance to ask questions and connect with their team.

You can find out more about fostering siblings at the FREE online event tonight, from 8pm to 9.30pm. Register your place here: Home for Good
