"We have found fostering rewarding as I think we have made a difference to the lives of the children we have in placement" - Lesley, Foster Parent
Why Do Children Need To Be Fostered?
There are many reasons why children are fostered. Most have suffered abuse in their lives and may have been removed from an abusive situation on a court order. There will be others who have been neglected or are beyond parental control. The common theme is that they will all have suffered loss and disruption.
Children and young people who have had difficult beginnings may be demanding or have challenging behaviour. We need foster parents who are able to see beyond the behaviour and have stickability.
Placements can be short term or long term. Currently there are 63,000 children in care in the UK. There is a shortfall of 9,070 foster parents. You could change a child's life.
We are looking for foster parents who have a sense of humour and are passionate about caring for young people. We are recruiting carers for all age ranges especially teenagers, sibling groups and parent and child placements.
