Welcome to our Fostering Team

Amazing things happen throughout our fostering family every day. As a founder led agency, we put children at the heart of everything we do.
 
We take pride in ensuring a team approach, where our foster carers are supported to become part of our family. We are constantly striving to create a caring fostering community where our foster carers and staff work together to ensure children’s needs are met.
 
At Care 4 Children Fostering, we work relentlessly to recruit, train and support our foster carers and are committed to providing stable, caring, family environments in which children will thrive. Our foster carers have access to an excellent training programme of ongoing support which ensures we can place children with a variety of needs.
 
We employ experienced and highly skilled social workers to ensure that we achieve the best possible outcome for the children in our care, and that every placement receives the dedicated support in whatever way is needed.
 

FAQs

Do I need a spare room?

Yes, to foster you need at least one spare room.

Can I foster if I’m single?

Yes, children come from all types of families and therefore we need lots of different types of carers for them. You can be single, a couple, same sex couple, of any background or culture, live with extended family (as long as they understand they would also have to be involved in the process).

Can I foster if I’m in full or part time employment?

Yes, children come from all types of families and therefore we need lots of different types of carers for them. We provide services to enable carers who work to access training and other support.

Do I need a driving licence?

It helps to be able to transport a child with ease and convenience, transporting children to school and contacts is a requirement of being a foster carer. So whilst not being able to drive won’t preclude you, you would need to think how you would manage.

Can I have pets?

Yes, but in some cases certain pets may pose too much of a risk, this is looked at in the initial stages.

Can I choose which age and sex of child I foster?

Yes, but the wider your approval, the more children you are likely to have placed and the lesser any gaps between placements.

Is there lots of Training?

There is some training during the process to becoming a foster carer, but you dont need any training before this. We try and make training fun and informative, so that people enjoy it as well as develop their skills
