Children’s Handbook

Every child arriving at a new foster carer with Sunbeam will receive a handbook. This will hopefully answer any questions you have and make you feel less worried.

We hope you find the guide helpful but if you are still unsure or have any questions you can ask your foster carer or social worker. Like you have a social worker, your foster carer will also have a social worker and you can also speak to them too.

The Guide Covers:

  • Important dates for you in foster care
  • Information about Sunbeam
  • School matters and education
  • Health matters
  • Bullying
  • At what age can you?
  • Procedures should you need to complain
  • Support available to you
  • IRO (Independent Reviewing Officer) information
  • Help and advice
  • Common questions
  • Contact details
