The Fostering Healthy Futures (FHF) model has been consulted on widely in terms of the feasibility of running the model for the benefit of young people in Wales. The model is premised on 8 young people (4 boys and 4 girls) who have recently entered foster care (age 9-11) participating in a manualised group work programme over a 30 week period, combined with being mentored by Masters’ social worker students; two groups run at the same time. The aim is to improve the long term mental health and well-being of care experienced young people. The staff from FHF, US have been keen to work with us and have been supportive thoughout in terms of discussing and advising on the operation of the model.
