Every child deserves to have a childhood where they feel loved and cared for. Unfortunately, there are thousands of children for which this isn’t the case.
Are you considering becoming a foster carer in 2016?
Foster carers can deliver fantastic outcomes for children and truly change their life. As the education secretary Nicky Morgan pointed out, foster care isn’t a sub-standard best option to adoption. In fact, it’s the permanent option for 75% of children in the care system.
Although it isn’t always easy, it is extremely rewarding and could change the course of someone’s life. When birth parents can’t rise up to the challenge, you could offer the stability and love they need.
Many different kinds of people can become foster carers. You can be married, single, employed or retired- the most important thing is you can provide a warm and loving home for a child. Above all, you must have the time, commitment and energy for a child.
