There are over 65,000 children in the foster care system at any given time in the UK.
Sadly, the number of children in foster care continues to rise each year, but not at the same rate that the number of cares does. This means that there are fewer carers, looking after more children. Fewer carers inevitably means that when children need foster care, choice is more limited.
By becoming a foster carer, you can help fill this gap and give children a chance for a brighter future.
Each child is unique, but everyone needs a safe and stable home where they can be loved and happy. This is what we provide through our foster placements. We work tirelessly to ensure foster carers and children are matched as best as possible so that children can be safe and happy.
Fostering is Not Adoption
Many people tend to mix up these two different terms. Adoption is a permanent arrangement where parents adopting the child take the legal responsibilities of the child until adulthood. Fostering, on the other hand, is a temporary arrangement where a child can remain in care for weeks, months, or even years and return to their original families once the situation allows for it.
Fostering is a way to give back to the community and help children flourish and be happy in a safe and stable environment. Get in touch with us to be part of this rewarding experience.
