About Fostering

heart

Fostering happens when children are unable to live with their birth parents or family.

 

This can be for a whole variety of reasons. Sometimes they may have experienced abuse, neglect or a parent may become ill and unable to care for their child.

 

In these situations, children or young people will be cared for by local council services who will help to find a temporary or permanent new home with a foster carer.

What Do Foster Carers Do?

As a foster carer, you’ll give vulnerable children from Bradford a safe environment to grow and learn, helping to improve their confidence and happiness one day at a time.

Depending on the child’s individual circumstances, you may provide care for a couple of days, a few years or until adulthood.

There are many types of fostering, including full-time, part-time and specialist care

To carry out the role of a foster carer, you’ll be supported by a highly professional team of social workers and offered on-going training.

 

You will work as part of a team of professionals to help create a better future for Bradford’s children and young people.
