What is foster care?

FosteringAs a foster carer, you'll:

  • Take them to school
  • Doctors appointments
  • Answer silly questions
  • Make them feel happy
  • Take them for days out
  • Support any special needs
  • Keep them safe and warm.

In return you'll be:

  • Making a difference to a child’s life
  • Enjoying having children in your life
  • Experiencing a sense of achievement from helping a child to learn and develop
  • Using your parenting or life skills
  • Helping your own family learn to share and care for others
  • Taking on a fresh challenge, whatever your age


If you're passionate about helping children and have a spare room, we'd love to hear from you.
