If you want to join in, you must agree to some basic rules to ensure everyone's welfare. These rules are guidelines and should be discused with your match in the first couple of meetings.
* Respect each other's culture, traditions, values and religions regardless of whether your beliefs are the same.
* No abusive or threatening behaviour (that means no insults, shouting or physical violence).
By agreeing to be part of this service, you agree to abide by the rules that you and your surrogate family have made. If you break these rules and your surrogate family report it, then you may be subject to exclusion from the scheme.
If you are matched with someone who is in care, you may need a Criminal Record Bureau check before meeting them.
