Having recently put our video together and talked to some of our carers, you really appreciate the difference each carer brings to the role.
In the same way as there is diversity in the children and young people we care for, the foster carer community has to be diverse too in order to be able to fully meet their needs. Indeed, it’s hugely important that there is a wide range of foster carers available with different skills, knowledge, and life experiences so that carers can be easily matched to the needs of the young people. By matching children and young people with families that can meet their needs both emotionally and practically at the beginning of the fostering process helps to prevent placements from breaking down, making them more sustainable. And we know that sustainable placements produce better outcomes.
So, whether you are single, married, co-habiting, or divorced, male or female, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, race, or age, we would welcome your application because none of these things are important to us. What is important is whether you can provide a safe, nurturing home to a fostered young person and your ability to be a positive influence in their life.
If you’d like to know more about becoming a foster carer or would like further information about the requirements, get in touch with us today. We are always happy to talk.
