Do you think you could support a vulnerable child?
If you’re thinking of becoming a foster carer in Manchester, Foster Careline are keen to help.
Every year, tens of thousands of children need foster carers when their parents are incapable of caring for them. Fostering can be incredibly rewarding and a life-changing experience for all involved, so how do you take this amazing step?
Many people don’t investigate fostering because they don’t think they’ll qualify, but becoming a foster carer isn’t as difficult as people think. For starters, a common misconception is that you can be too old to foster, but this isn’t the case. Becoming a foster carer is possible for any age-group, providing you are over 21 years old.
You also don’t have to own your own home to become a foster carer. Providing you have a spare bedroom big enough for a young person, are a full UK resident and have the time to care for a vulnerable child, the chances are you will be considered.
Furthermore, many people aren’t sure whether they receive financial support. You can rest assured you will receive generous financial support, including tax breaks, when becoming a carer.
