Fostering is giving a child a stable and caring home when their parents are unable to look after them for some reason. Our approved foster carers provide a safe place and the support that these children and young people need to thrive, whatever situation they have come from.
What is fostering?
Fostering is different to raising your own children, so it’s important to understand the fostering process and what a foster placement can be like. There are also many different kinds of foster care to help you decide what option is best for you. And although your fostering journey will be hugely rewarding, it won’t always be easy, which is why we’ll give you all the support you need to settle in to this new way of life and make it successful.
