Fostering is looking after a child or young person in your home and caring for them whilst their own parents are unable to do so. Our approved foster carers provide a warm and safe home so that children can recover and thrive.
What is involved in becoming a foster carer?
We are driven by a passion to support young people in a way that best suits their individual needs and circumstances. Children and young people in foster care need to experience normal family life. As a foster carer you will provide a stable family environment, nurturing and guiding young people to unlock their unique potential, and equipping them for a brighter future.
Why do children go into foster care?
There are a number of reasons why a child or young person may not be able to live with their own family, such as bereavement, illness or family breakdown. In some cases, a child may be removed from the family home for their own safety. Their local authority then becomes responsible for their welfare and they become a ‘looked after child’.
