The ’12 Myths of Christmas’ busted by our foster carers

Staffordshire foster carers and our Fostering & Adoption team are working together to bust fostering myths!

As in previous years, our Staffordshire foster carers have joined together in a Christmas campaign to encourage more families to consider fostering.

Christmas can be a tough time for many of our children in care but it can also be a good time to highlight the need for more families to help.

This latest campaign, ’12 Myths of Fostering’ is all about busting some of the most commonly reported myths holding people back from fostering.

We know from talking to potential foster carers that there are a lot of misconceptions about who can and cannot foster, and this campaign is all about exploring those myths and debunking them. There are 12 videos online, on Youtube, on Facebook and on Twitter for you to watch and share with your friends and family.

It’s really important that we get the message across as with record numbers of children being in the unfortunate position of being placed in care, it’s vital that we have a strong network of foster families to give them the love they need. If fostering is something you might consider, then you’ll find out more at

Have a very merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year.
