Muslim Children in Care

Support For Professionals

Support for Muslim service users and staff

Social work providers sometimes struggle to communicate effectively with Muslim applicants, for example, when fostering applicants express concerns about caring for children of different gender or sexual identities. The Director of Sparks Fostering (Tay Jiva MBE) offers free consultancy to fostering agencies and can also speak with the applicants directly if needed.

Live online training on the topic of ‘Supporting Muslim service users and staff’ is available for any social care provider. 


Tay has also written guidance on how professionals can support Muslim children through Ramadan.
