Change children's lives through fostering

6 January 2020

‘On New Year's Eve the whole world celebrates the fact that a date changes.


Let us celebrate the dates on which we change the world.’

Kick-start the year by making a difference to children in care. 

As a foster carer you will be changing the lives of babies, older children or teenagers by offering them a safe, loving and stable home.  

Do you want to get involved? There are a few things you need to know:

  • To foster you must be over 21. There is no upper age limit.
  • Having indefinite leave to remain in the UK is mandatory. 
  • You can foster older children or teenagers only if you have a spare bedroom. To care for babies you must have space for a cot in your bedroom. 
  • Being flexible is key. As a baby carer, you need to be available 24/7, but if you want to care for older children, you can work part-time or full-time.  
  • You need to be financially stable. From us you will receive a weekly allowance that covers the living costs of the child and a fee for your effort.  

Come to the fostering information evening on 16 January to find out more and speak to one of our foster carers. Book now.
