Foster Children’s Way to Become Independent – Meeting Their Living, Psychological and Social Needs
Languages of publication
While becoming independent, foster children need more than financial support only. It has been proven that even the most mature foster children reveal high levels of fear, aggression and reluctance to any kind of change in their lives in the period of a year or so before leaving the foster home. Additionally, it is observed that the number of children under foster care is constantly growing alarmingly, thus the scope of activities related to assisting them in becoming independent will not decrease. That is why NIK has audited 25 local family support centres and city social welfare centres. Moreover, anonymous surveys have been conducted among foster children at the age of eighteen and more who used assistance offered for becoming independent, and their tutors. In his article, the author presents the detailed findings of this audit.
