Why foster?

Are you having doubts about fostering? Here is why you should foster! Fostering can be a rewarding and a life-changing experience for you and the child you are helping. And it’s easier than you think.

Family Works Fostering is committed to child-centred practice and individualised packages of care and support to our foster carers. This is embedded in an approach to caring which focusses on the physical, social, and emotional wellbeing of children and young people. We always ensure we put our Foster Carers, children and young people in their care and the Social Workers that support them; at the forefront of our priorities. As a Foster Carer you benefit from our investment in you.

We offer a high quality professional development and tailored training packages. Our Foster Carers are a central and highly regarded component of our professional team, working to ensure the best outcomes for the foster children and young people in our care and this makes fostering very significant and rewarding to do.

This is an exciting time for you to join us, as we are recruiting foster carers to be able to provide children and young people with short-term or long-term care. By opening up your heart and your home you can give children a chance in life and the future they deserve. Give us your love and support and in exchange you will be rewarded with training, and one to one support and mentoring every step of the way.
