Fostering

Foster carers come from a variety of backgrounds. We are looking for people who have time, patience and flexibility. To be considered you must have a spare bedroom, be over the age of 21 and willing to work closely with social workers.

Specific qualifications are not necessary. An interest in children, enthusiasm and good energy levels are essential. People who foster with us generally have a good sense of humour and can deal with a variety of issues with sensitivity. You must be able to gauge and understand the needs of a child who may have certain problems.
