Some testimonials from our carers in Wales:
'We've had the best experience over the last eight months with our foster child that any foster carer could ask for. The major learning point for us was to understand and accept the behaviours that came with the child, this was by no way easy and without all the support and training from Foster Care Co-operative we think we would not have managed.'
'I’ve really enjoyed every moment of fostering over the last year or so. I’ve learned and found new understandings of other cultures and faiths. The implications for me are that there are always interesting and valuable lessons to be gained from all of our children.'
‘We have fostered for FCC for six years. We have always had fantastic support and guidance from all the staff. I think it is easy to bring up issues and concerns on a regular basis, but forget to give more positive comments. We feel part of a team in Wales and I think that speaks volumes for the quality of the service FCC provides.’
'I am happy working for the FCC. I believe they compare very favourably with other agencies out there ... I understand that we need to be extremely businesslike and competitive in order to survive but would hate to see us become so corporate that the current, excellent, inter-personal relationship between management and carers was endangered. In short, keep up the good work and remember – if it ‘ain't broke, don’t fix it'!
