About Fostering

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.

You are aged over 21.

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.
