How to Become A Foster Carer

The fact you’re thinking about becoming a foster carer puts you in a special group of people – the most caring, determined and interesting people we know.

There are many reasons why people foster, but the main motivation has to be the chance to make a difference in a child’s life.
Day-to-day contributions can be as simple as ensuring they have breakfast in the morning and a hot meal in the evening, but these small things have an enormous impact. Making sure they get to the doctor on time or take a pen to school can significantly improve their life chances.

The journey from childhood to adulthood can be difficult, and having a person to rely on makes all the difference to children and young people in care.

This person could be you.

What is Fostering?

Fostering is a way of providing children and young people with a safe, secure and loving home.

It involves everything from short-term fostering placements (which last just days or weeks) to longer-term opportunities for children who can’t return to their own families.

A career as a foster carer offers you lots of opportunity because there are so many children in need of your love and support.

And we support you every step of the way.
