Why foster with us

We believe that every child and young person deserves to feel safe and secure and encouraged to reach their full potential. The process of becoming a foster carer normally takes between four and six months and we will support you every step of the way.

Our children and young people all have different needs so we make sure that we match carefully with foster carers to ensure long-term stability for the foster child or young person.

  • Our foster carers receive a startup package, professional support, comprehensive training once they are approved and 24 hour support and advice
  • We hold regular support groups and have a range of events throughout the year for children in care
  • Our foster carers have the best chance of being matched with children that suit their circumstances

The training we attended was really comprehensive and helps you to manage lots of situations that may arise, we also got a chance to talk it through with others in the group.
