Why foster with us?

Why foster with us?

  • It doesn’t take long. After application references you could be welcoming your first child home in six months.
  • You will change lives. You will change your own life as well as that of a child’s.
  • We’ll be there with you. All foster carers have access to a social worker to provide advice, guidance and support. This includes out of hours and peer support.
  • We’re flexible. There is a type of foster care that will suit you. Find out more about the different types of fostering available.
  • You won’t be out of pocket. Our foster carers will receive financial support and we pay foster carers above the national recommended rate
  • You can learn so much. A foster child will bring the things they love with them, challenge you and introduce you to new things.
  • You can take things further. We offer a vast amount of training including accredited qualifications, face to face and Children and young people's workforce training.
