How to be a Penguin is a website for foster, adoptive and kinship families in Leicester and Leicestershire.

Fostering and adoption is a bit like being an Emperor penguin. Facing relentless storms, fiercely protecting the child entrusted to us, whilst waiting patiently for the spring warmth. It is love against the odds.

Emperor penguins don’t do this job alone. They huddle together: they keep warm, and they keep each other going.

Fostering and adoption can be tricky sometimes. We need each other too. How to be a Penguin is a great resource for all foster, adoptive and kinship families in Leicester and Leicestershire – with information about support groups and events, helpful resources and stories.

We are not alone: so keep going. You are doing a great job, which makes a massive difference.
