What our children & young

people say about us

We believe that some of the best people to tell you about Parallel Parents are the children and young people that our foster carers look after. 

To preserve anonymity true photos of children have not been used.

"My carer is the best carer and she's always there whenever I need someone to talk to or if I'm feeling down. She's like a mum and I love her to bits."


"I've already got the best foster carer you've got so what more could I ask for!"


"I love it here. We do all sorts - go on bike rides, youth clubs."


"Our carer has been taking care of us and giving us loving care. They are the best!"

"My carers are the best carers I have ever had, and I have had a lot of placements."


"I love my carer with all my heart, she makes me laugh and cheers me up. My life has changed in a good way."


"I could not ask for better people!"


"I have enjoyed living with my foster carer and have felt safe and protected and well looked after. The company is brilliant, better than social services... I have always felt safe and very well looked after by my carer."

Read Charlie, Brandon & Ellie's story


Charlie, Brandon and Ellie were all very young when they came into foster care due to neglect – 4, 3, and 2 respectively. Developmentally, they were very behind – Charlie, the oldest, had not started nursery and was still in nappies. All of the children were malnourished, had severe dental problems and limited verbal communication.

All of the children were placed together and their foster carers began by seeing to the children's immediate health needs, liaising with various medical professionals. The carers did an amazing job: in what seemed like no time, Charlie and Brandon were toilet trained, speech and language therapy was under way, and the children were gaining weight and starting to look happier and healthier.
