"Foster carers have done a lot for me. Especially when you are young, it’s important to know that someone loves you." J, aged 18
"She is a funny, caring woman who makes me feel safe. I am very lucky to have come to live with her. They have made me feel like I belong here and like I'm part of their family, which is fantastic because you need to feel safe and happy."
"They are the most amazing and caring people you could ever meet. I wouldn't change my time there for the world."
"A good foster carer is someone who is dedicated, friendly, treats you the same, cares about you and is there for you when you need them. At Christmas, they made me feel welcome and part of the family."
"Don’t judge the young person, give them a chance. I used to be a bit of a rebel; getting drunk and stuff. In the last year, I have changed and it’s down to my foster carer." Young person, aged 15
"She taught me how to cook. I was sat watching cartoons and she said I could help her instead of just sitting there. She taught me how to make a broccoli soup; that’s now one of my favourite things to cook." L, aged 18
