HOW TO BECOME A FOSTER CARER WITH SWIIS

Meet our carers

Swiis Carer Audrey

“I feel there is always room in a family for someone else and knowing that you are making a difference makes me really pleased and want to continue fostering.”

Conrad Foster Carer

“What children care about the most isn’t materialistic things. It’s them knowing that somebody’s going to be there at the end of the day to pick them up from school, feeling cared for and loved, knowing they belong, that’s what’s important to children in care.”

Why Foster?

Over 65,000 children live with foster families each day in the UK. There are currently not enough foster carers to look after these children. Fostering offers you the chance to make a life-changing difference to a child. Can you ‘Give a child a chance’?

Make a child or young person feel safe, secure and nurtured.

There is no greater joy than bringing happiness to a child, giving them a sense of belonging and helping them to achieve their goals.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Feel part of a supportive community of carers who want to give children and young people a better start in life.

Our foster carers can feel part of a network of people doing something very special.

JOIN THE COMMUNITY

Fostering is a flexible and rewarding career choice. Earn up to £710 per week as a foster carer with Swiis.

We pay our foster carers well due to the exceptional value that they bring to the children.
