Voice of Foster Care: Lived Experience

Voice of Foster Care: Lived Experience

Lived experience is recognized across an increasing number of domains as a valuable source of expertise on how to help anyone.

This year iFoster released their first-ever guide Lived Experience to Fixing Foster Care; coupled with last year’s report, 6,000 lived experience voices have shaped this compendium’s comprehensive findings and recommendations. The core recommendations are

  • put the child at the center
  • prevent the need for care by addressing poverty
  • professionalize caregivers
  • auto-enrolment in support services
  • self-sufficiency is a choice

Read the report and hear directly from youth at https://www.voiceoffostercare.org/
