We have first hand experience in the use of systemic practice within fostering services and how this can assist the development of skills and reflective abilities of foster carers.
LiKa carers will therefore have confidence in the support provided by LiKa Family Fostering, which enables them to embrace the challenges that children bring, viewing difficult times as the critical moments that create growth in their relationships.
LiKa Carers are skilled practitioners in their own right, knowing instinctively how to use therapeutic ideas to become an agent of change in children’s lives.
“Foster carers also have high praise for the leaders of the fostering service. A foster carer told the inspector, ‘The team are very positive, reassuring, enthusiastic and passionate, with lots of energy. They want to train us to be the best foster carers we can be.” (Ofsted Inspection 2017)
THE NAME LIKA IS TWO SYLLABLES LONG AND IS PRONOUNCED ‘L(IY)- KA’.
LiKa as a word has its own diverse meaning: it’s a unisex name and is used within the language of many different countries. We feel the name not only relates to the diversity of children, foster carers, staff and community who are connected to LiKa Family Fostering. It also connects ourselves by letter, symbolic of the heart and soul we have poured into it’s creation.
