People choose to become foster carers for a variety of reasons personal to them. Whatever the reasons may be, the impact of that decision on a foster child’s life is life changing for them. With over 80,000 children requiring care in the UK there is a huge demand for more fostering households.
A sense of belonging
For some, fostering is about feeling part of a supportive community of carers who want to give children and young people a better start in life.
Make a difference
By being a foster carer you can help a child or young person in countless ways, by making them feel safe, secure and valued. There is no greater joy than bringing happiness to a child, a sense of belonging and helping them to dream dreams. By nurturing a looked after child or young person, you will help them to appreciate what makes them unique and help them to aspire to a future which they may not have had.
