In 2008 I had the pleasure of a young person coming to stay with me that resulted in an application to adopt. He is the light of my life and makes me smile every day.
I then met Ian who joined our family and we were married in 2019. While it is fantastic to now have this extra help at home, Swiis offer round-the-clock support with the behaviour management team and my supervising social worker is always on hand if I feel like I need advice.
I would encourage anyone, whether they are single or part of a couple to foster with Swiis as it has completely changed my life and my children’s lives for the better.
If Margaret’s fostering story has inspired you, speak to someone in our team about becoming a foster carer. They will be happy to answer any questions you have – big or small!
