Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency

Jack* is a chatty, energetic and intelligent young boy.  Jack is inquisitive and enthusiastic about learning, loves school and playing hurling.

Jack has been in care from a very young age, and he has had several foster homes.  These foster families love Jack very much, however Jack presents with significant trauma and attachment difficulties, which has made it difficult for him to live in harmony with other children.

Jack will need foster carers who are loving, patient, understanding, consistent, who can set clear boundaries and who have knowledge of trauma and attachment difficulties.  It would be preferable for Jack to be cared for by a couple who have no children or do not have any children under the age of 18 years old.

Jack also requires significant therapeutic intervention so it would be important that his carers work closely with the professionals involved in his life to ensure a holistic approach to his care.   

For more information, please contact Tusla's national freephone fostering number 1800 226 771 or email tusla.fostering@tusla.ie. More details on Tusla fostering services can be found on fostering.ie
