Raising teens – support for foster and kinship carers

Life with tweens and teenagers can have its ups and downs as they face those growing years! Caring for a teen can be tough at times and there’s always room for new ideas.

Raising Tweens and Teens: A Guide for Carers and Caseworkers is a valuable resource for foster and kinship carers of pre-teens and teenagers in out-of-home care.

It provides useful tips and ideas to support carers with the day to day and the more challenging issues.

You can find advice for each stage of the teenage years below – as well as a useful ‘Carer Toolkit’.
