Fostering is a job like no other and requires energy, patience, resilience and understanding. Foster carers provide a loving and supportive home for children and young people whose own families, for various reasons, are not able to look after them. The care provided as a foster carer helps to ensure that all looked after children are given the very best start in life in a warm, supportive and nurturing environment.
Fostering isn’t easy. It can be challenging and frustrating at times, but the difference that foster carers make is truly life-changing and incredibly rewarding.
Our children and young people come from very different backgrounds and situations. We therefore strive to recruit a diverse range of foster carers, so that we have an increased likelihood of finding matches for each child and young person. There are a fantastic range of benefits and support structures for our foster carers, which you can read about here
