Jocylin on Foster Care
It is a privilege to become a Fostering Ambassador for Verve, I feel passionately about children having support from Foster Carers, it allows children and young adults who are not with parents for various reasons to stay in a family environment.
Jocylin's Foster Care Story
I feel that if children do not have that support through quality Foster care, there is every chance that they can choose the wrong path and develop strategies that are then capable of them taking the best years of their lives to come good. Foster Carers are vital in giving a vulnerable child or young person an anchor when they are adrift.
Over my career I have supported, cared for and counselled individuals with issues of addiction, mental health, and disability, as well as on a personal level providing care myself. Most issues can be worked with, and by supporting children and young adults that may have witnessed these issues and they deal with them in the only a way they can, this can done the wrong or right way. Foster Carers can make the difference to help children and young people to develop the strategies to choose the right way.
