Ceressa Bateman started Foster Families Magazine in 2009 to provide extra support to foster carers and fostering service providers. She created an engaging publication that would become a must-read for foster carers. The first issue came out in June 2009.
Historically Foster Families was published quarterly and offered advice on the many difficulties faced when fostering. It was a fun, relevant and well written – a relaxing yet informative must-read for foster-mums. If you would like to order back issues they are still available and can be obtained by emailing Ceressa.
Due to the increasing costs of producing a paper publication future editions have been put on hold.
We will be soon be redeveloping the website and populating it with new pages and features from previous copies of the magazine. We will also be reinvigorated the site with exciting new functionality and support for everyone involved in fostering... watch this space. In the meantime if you would like to get in touch with us please email in the first instance.
