Become A Foster Carer!
What is fostering?
Fostering offers children and young people a caring, stable family life when they are unable to live with their birth family at a point in time. Fostering is when a child is placed in an alternative family who are able to meet their needs. Foster carers provide stability, security and a positive family life for vulnerable children.
Children come into care from diverse backgrounds, cultural settings and with different abilities. Children and young people are looked after for a variety of reasons. The term ‘looked after’ is used to specify that the local authority is providing accommodation for children and young people. Foster carers provide a room in their home that a child can call their own.
