If a child or young person is disabled and/or in the care system, they may have more difficulties with friendships causing them to be socially isolated. This is why The Children’s Society  has created a set of fabulous free resources.

“Professionals delivering foster care and short breaks services are invited to implement simple changes to practice and strengthen carer training to increase friendship in the lives of children. Use our freely downloadable, nationally piloted and evaluated resources and customise them to your requirements without incurring additional cost to your service” The Children’s Society. 

The resources can be downloaded below.

Friendship for children in care

 

Our mission is to help bring about improvements in practice and policy. Holding children at the centre of what we do through our work with and for them, we aim to lead and promote excellent care and services. The partnership consists of an elected Chair and elected Regional Leads who represent their regions at a national level (two from each of the nine regions within England).
