  • Are willing to learn and seek support;
  • Are adaptable and emotionally resilient;
  • Are able to value and understand a child’s past experiences;
  • Can empathise with the difficulties the child will have gone through;
  • Are able to remain committed to the child through both good and challenging times;
  • Will support the child in maintaining contact with their family and friends;
  • Will encourage, support and promote the educational needs of the child;
  • Will encourage and provide a healthy lifestyle;
  • Will support the child’s individual interests.
