Experiences of specialist foster carers in Bulgaria
Sarah’s research is focused on the perspectives of people involved in the ongoing de-institutionalisation of care for children in Bulgaria. She is specifically interested in researching foster carers’ experiences of caring for children with disabilities. She hopes that her research will contribute to the ongoing effort to find a home for every child through equipping future foster carers in Bulgaria.
