The main requirement of a foster carer is to offer a safe and nurturing family environment to a child or young person who is unable to be cared for by their birth parent or birth family network for a variety of reasons. This may involve the foster carer looking after a child / young person for a short period or for much longer depending on their individual background and circumstances.
If you feel you have the ability to become a foster carer then please talk to the placement service team at Parent and Child Fostering Service Ltd. Whatever your religious or ethnic background, whether you are married, single, or in a same sex relationship, if you can demonstrate to us that you can help support a child placed into your care then we can work together.Staff will talk to you about the training opportunities which will help give you the confidence and competence to foster vulnerable children. They will also talk to you about the financial and support package we offer our carers. You can request our information pack which provides you with a lot of information about the unique rewards.
