What is fostering?

If you are looking for a rewarding and challenging career or want to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people, then consider becoming a foster carer.

Foster carers provide a safe and loving home for children and young people who cannot live with their birth families. They offer support and guidance and help children to reach their full potential.

Foster carers come from all walks of life. They could be single, married, or in a relationship. They may or may not have children of their own. They could be young, old, or in between.

The only thing that all foster carers have in common is a love of children and a desire to make a difference.

If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster carer, please contact us today. We would be happy to answer any of your questions and help you to start your journey.

Here are some of the benefits of becoming a foster carer:

  • you can make a real difference in the lives of children and young people
  • you will receive support and training from a dedicated team of professionals
  • you will be part of a supportive community of foster carers
  • you will receive a financial allowance to help with the costs of fostering

Our carers represent our communities and come from a range of backgrounds. Read more about who can foster.

So, if you have been thinking about fostering and would like to make a real difference to a child’s life, get in touch with us today or attend one of our fostering information sessions.

Our friendly team will answer any questions you may have and support you every step of the way on your fostering journey.
