Mockingbird Family Model (a new way of providing foster care)


The Mockingbird Family Model is a new way of providing foster care.

As a foster carer, you can join a supportive community with other foster families.

It's like having a big, extended family to support you and the children you care for:

  • carers can support each other to overcome problems
  • young people can have more adults in their lives who care about their safety and wellbeing
  • young people can form positive relationships with other people in care

By joining a Mockingbird group, you will get:

  • regular social events
  • sleepovers and short breaks for children
  • support and mentoring from other carers
