About the training course: Fostering in a digital age

About Enable

We developed Enable after studying the online lives of young people over several years. Our research found that some children and teens were more at risk than others online. Many had offline vulnerabilities or difficulties, such as emotional or mental health concerns, so a bad online experience was acutely felt and potentially harmful. Yet the digital world meant so much to them. It could be a refuge from their everyday struggles and offered support and connection, plus exciting opportunities.

We explored how frontline children’s services interact with children and young people in cases with a digital component. They told us what they found challenging and what was needed. What we learned is brought to Enable-pathway with advice from 40 young people in foster care and more than 70 foster carers.
