Foster carers are there to help a child or young person feel safe, secure and cared for. As a fostering provider, we share this responsibility and spend a great deal of time planning support for our children.
We are also here to do the same for you, supporting you every step of the way. You will not be expected to cope alone. Whatever you need, let us know and a member of our dedicated, friendly team will be on hand. As well as having your own Supervising Social Worker, you will have access to support from others such as a counsellor, therapist, support worker and educationalist.
As well as 24/7 support from our team, you will also benefit from the support of other local foster carers as part of our foster carer forums and peer mentoring scheme. You will receive regular training and will be encouraged to contribute to our training agenda each year. We are also members of Foster Talk – a nationwide organisation that provides invaluable additional support to our foster carers.
We have developed our support package by listening to our foster carers. We know fostering isn’t a 9-5 job, which is why we are on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.
