Fostering - what you can expect from us

We understand that in order to be able to perform this role to the best of your ability you need our support, as well as help to develop your skills.

Fostering is a skilled role. But we don’t expect you to be an expert before you start.

We provide lots of training to increase your understanding of key aspects of fostering and help you to apply what you’ve learnt to the situations you’ll come across in daily life. We’ll help you to decide what sort of fostering you’ll provide. You might look after children in an emergency, or for a few months or years, or until they reach adulthood. Or it might be that you provide part-time regular care, like one weekend a month. This means we can match you with children who will benefit the most from your care.

We’ll also make sure you’ve got plenty of support. Your social worker is key to this, providing advice and help on an ongoing basis. You’ll also be able to meet up with other foster carers and share ideas and concerns at regular support groups. You’ll receive payments to cover the cost of caring for a child and fees which recognise your skills and experience. We also pay holiday, birthday and Christmas allowances for the children in your care.

You’ll receive support and training to help you deliver the best possible care.
