Our foster carers come from many different backgrounds and all have one thing in common – a belief in the difference that foster carers can make.
Answer this quick Q&A to see if you could be a foster carer
Could you be the support a child needs?
But it takes more than the basics to change a child’s life. It takes skills that can’t be taught – like patience, compassion, empathy and the ability to put a child’s needs before your own and, of course, accepting and embracing their differences.
For many children, coming into care is a confusing time. You’ll need to be able to offer them the comfort and continuity they need, as well as supporting their specific religious and cultural needs.
Most importantly of all, you’ll be able to provide with them a stable, nurturing family home. Somewhere they can feel safe and secure. Somewhere they can just be themselves.
Fostering isn’t always easy, but it’s incredibly rewarding. And with our 24/7 package of training and support, we’re here for you every step of the way.
