However, the authors do not exclude birth parents from the concept of team parenting of young people in foster care. About the study The study was carried out in the UK with the help of one local authority in each country. The local authorities were located in different regional areas, covering inner-city and rural areas. Other organisations such as independent fostering agencies and support groups, who work with foster carers or teenagers in foster care, were also involved. The research was carried out through three different stages: • Stage 1: Focus groups were carried out with teenagers aged 13 to 16 years old in foster care; foster carers of teenagers aged 13 to 16 years old; and social workers and supervising social workers with other supporting professionals.
This has clear implications for policies that are based on parents being legally responsible for their children’s behaviour (see Chapter 1 for further discussion of this point). Also, it demonstrates how difficult it may be for many parents to start to monitor and supervise their children ‘more’, when these processes are embedded so deeply in family relationships and communication. There are a number of ways in which the findings from this research can be used within the field of family support.
In this study, we asked young people about the support they received from their social workers. A few young people did not hold any particular opinion of their social worker nor did they have any kind of relationship with them. However, about a quarter of the young people said they liked their social worker, appreciated the support they received, felt able to talk to them about problems and worries, and had fun with them. They also appreciated help in life areas, such as developing a hobby or contact with their birth family.
