Foster Carers Needed

  • Do you think that you could change the life of a child or a young person?

  • Do you have patience, tolerance and understanding?

  • Do you have a spare bedroom?

Then you really can make a difference to the life of a child!

Safehouses Fostering firmly believes that every child has the right to a stable and caring family environment, where they are supported, encouraged and where they feel safe.

The warmth and nurturing of a family environment can provide young people with the security they need to grow into confident and secure adults. We are always looking for caring, patient people who have expertise in looking after children and who are willing to undertake training to prepare them for a career as a Safehouses Fostering Foster Carer.

Do you share our principles and commitment to children?

We believe that each and every child is entitled to the highest quality of care in every area of their lives, and we work alongside our dedicated Foster Carers to promote opportunities for children to develop new skills and interests as a way of building resilience and promoting improved self-esteem.

Could you work with us to help children achieve their potential?

Safehouses Fostering recruits, trains and supports people who wish to take on the rewarding, yet often challenging, task of offering a safe, nurturing and caring home for Looked After Children.

We understand that the decision to become a Foster Carer is a daunting one. Your life will change – you will learn new skills, meet new people and face challenges that you have never encountered before.  However, we will be supporting you every step of the way and we will always be on hand to help you. We also understand that you may feel overwhelmed by your decision to foster, the amount of time that the process takes, the forms that need completed, the checks that need to be done and the questions that we need to ask you. Again, don’t worry, we are on your side and will assist you in every way that we can.

We have guided many people through the application process and continue to work with them today – together we support vulnerable children and ensure that we provide the best care and support that we can.

Our experienced Social Workers are happy to offer advice, guidance and support to enable you to take those first steps to your career as a professional Foster Carer
