Mockingbird programme to support foster families extended further
The Mockingbird Family Model, delivered by The Fostering Network, centres on a constellation where one foster home acts as a hub, offering planned and emergency sleepovers and short breaks, advice, training and support, to six to 10 satellite households. The model was originally developed by The Mockingbird Society in America in 2004. Its aim is to provide practice and emotional support, and boost their resilience. Ten new locations have now been announced. More information can be seen by clicking here and connecting to the Fostering Network website.
