Dedicate this month to looking into fostering. Life is unfair for many children, but you have the power to change this. By becoming a foster carer you take on the responsibility of loving and caring for a child and helping them improve their life.
Making a firm decision about fostering is not easy. But we are always here to help and support you.
Do you want to get involved? This is what 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.
