In this post, Jenny Simpson shares her research into how foster carers manage young people's use of digital devices. The study involved young people in care aged 14-18 in England, as well as their foster carers and social workers, and considered how they used such devices to contact family members. It found that monitoring of young people’s use of such devices was a continuous part of the foster carers’ role but they often lacked adequate skills, training and support.
