Choosing to foster is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Being a foster carer isn’t always easy but the rewards are huge. Knowing you can change a child’s life forever can give a tremendous amount of satisfaction.
We welcome foster carers from different backgrounds with all kinds of skills. We particularly need foster carers who can look after children with disabilities, older children, and brothers and sisters.
Fostering means caring for someone else’s child or children
Foster children do not become the full legal responsibility of their foster carers. Foster carers share responsibility for the child they look after with the local authority and the child’s parents.
There are many different types of foster care. Fostering placements can range from as little as a few weeks to a few years but in a minority of cases some children are fostered until they grow up.
