Three happy kids

Mockingbird

We are proud to be delivering the Mockingbird Family Model. It is an alternative method of delivering foster care. It has the potential to improve placement stability, safety and permanency for children and young people in care, and to improve support for our foster carers.

Katy* tells her story of coming into care and the difference Mockingbird has made to her experience in this short animation.

 

 

“Mockingbird is fantastic, brilliant, we wouldn’t be still in fostering now if it wasn’t for our Hub carer and the rest of the Mockingbird team. There is always someone to talk to. They have become a part of our family. Love them all.”

*Katy is not the young person's real name. This has been changed to protect her identity. 

“Volunteers are the best. People don’t understand or realise how much time and effort it takes to make their young person feel safe and trust them.”
