Some children like to have sleepovers at their friends houses and when you are in care this should not be any different. If you want a sleepover at a friend’s house ask your carer about this. Just like good parents would do they will want to make sure you will be ok and well looked after whilst you are there as they need to know you will be.

“When I stay at my friend’s house my carer will talk to my friend’s parents first. My carer will check out the arrangements, find out what I will be doing and make sure she has their address and telephone number. It is good to know they want to look after me”
