‘It takes a village to raise a child’.
An old African proverb states that ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. At Flourish Fostering we recognise the complex skills that exist within successful fostering families. Bringing a symbolic ‘community’, or ‘village’ of successful fostering families and staff together can create a powerfully potent environment for nurturing and raising the most socially and emotionally deprived children. This is why Flourish Fostering has created a Founders Group, made up of 30 therapeutically experienced and successful fostering families and staff members to symbolise that ‘community’ or ‘village’ in which other families and staff members can draw upon this pooled wealth of experience in nurturing children towards recovery. The meaning being that an entire community must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment.
Flourish Fostering is a niche therapeutic provider of care for children and young people who cannot live with their own families for all kinds of reasons. Many of those children have been exposed to extraordinary experiences that children should never have to live through. Consequently the child’s trust in adults has usually been crushed and so they need people who can take their time in learning to understand what they have been through and the impact of that on a child’s emotional wellbeing.
