Great Foster Carers are at the heart of a successful foster placement. It takes drive, compassion, flexibility, a sense of humour, and an open mind to foster. Each foster carer that chooses us becomes part of our family, and here’s what you can expect from us.
We Support You
Whilst we know that fostering is a rewarding and fulfilling career, we also understand that it can be challenging. That is why we have a dedicated social work team, available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to support you.
During your application process, we are with you every step of the way, supporting you on your fostering journey. This doesn’t stop when you become a carer, you’ll have a dedicated social worker and a team of support workers, we’re there when you need us.
We also give you a foster carer ‘buddy’ – someone who has been through the process and has become a foster carer with us. They will have a unique point of view and will be able to provide a different type of support to you.
We invest in you
Your vast life experience, whatever your background, is a great step towards being able to provide a good and stable home for a foster child or young person. We will help to boost your knowledge and skills at the start of, and throughout your fostering journey with us.
Our specialist training programme is tailored to suit the types of fostering that suits your fostering household, and is always in line with National Minimum Standards.
We find the right match
Welcoming someone into your home can be daunting. We do everything we can to make sure that each foster placement works for your fostering family, and for the child in our care. Our expert Placements Team works tirelessly to find the right match for each child and young person that comes into our care. You will always get to choose who you bring into your home.
Successful and stable placements improve life chances for looked after children. This is why we do what we do, and why we are passionate about it!
