Fostering is a way of providing a safe and secure home environment for children and young people who cannot live with their own family.
As a foster carer, you will provide support for a child at a time when they need it the most. Many of the children who need fostering have been through some very traumatic experiences. They may have some challenging behaviour or they might just feel lonely and afraid.
Fostering can make a big impact to a child’s life and it’s the care and love you give them during this time that can make a real difference. This is why we will ensure you have all the skills and support necessary to enable you to do this well.
