Fostering in a digital world: a common sense guide

7200 - Fostering in a digital world: a common sense guide

Fostered children deserve to live normal lives, but how can we balance this with keeping them as safe as possible in an increasingly digital world?

Fostering in a digital world: a common sense guide provides foster carers and other professionals with essential information and tools to enable fostered children to benefit from using laptops, gaming consoles, tablets and mobile phones, while managing risk sensibly and effectively.

The guide includes clear, relevant advice on:
• the growth of digital technologies and online safety, including social networking, for fostered children
• understanding and managing the risks, including grooming, cyber-bullying and gaming
• what foster carers and other professionals need to be aware of as the digital world evolves.

There are also ‘What you can do’ checklists, signposts to other useful resources, and a handy jargon buster.
