We know that there are unique challenges that foster carers and adoptive parents face in their daily lives. Caring for children who have experienced trauma and difficult pasts can be immensely challenging, and it is important to provide support for these families.
To help support foster carers and adoptive parents in the online space, the UK Safer Internet Centre has published a range of guides and resources. These resources are designed to help parents and carers navigate the digital world with their children, and to ensure that they are protected from any potential harm.
We strongly encourage all foster carers and adoptive parents to take advantage of these resources, and to visit the UK Safer Internet Centre website to find out more. By providing support and guidance in this critical area, we can help these families to better understand the online world, and to provide a safe and nurturing environment for the children in their care.
LAMP Learning is dedicated to supporting families in many aspects of their lives, we know access to information and support is essential for the well-being of children and young people. We hope that these resources from the UK Safer Internet Centre will be valuable to foster carers and adoptive parents, and we encourage you to share this information with others who may benefit from it.
