Why Foster?

If you’re looking to make a real difference to young children’s lives, foster care may be the right path for you.

All children and young people deserve to live in a safe and happy home, with the help of foster carers we can make this a reality.

With an increased number of children being placed into foster care, we need additional foster carers more than ever to help care for those who desperately need it. If you are passionate about making a difference to young people’s lives and helping change their lives for the better, becoming a foster carer could be perfect for you.

Reasons to foster

There are lots of reasons why people choose to foster. Some of the main reasons to foster include:

  • Reward - perhaps the main reason, fostering can be very rewarding – as you can help to change the outcomes for children and young people.
  • Helping the local community - you may be fostering children who live in your local community, so by helping improve children’s lives, you may also be helping your local community too.
  • Building on your skills – you may already have a plethora of experience looking after children. If you’re looking to put this experience to good use by trying something new, foster care is a great avenue to explore.
  • Financial rewards – fostering is a full-time job, which comes with a fostering allowance. Learn more about how much foster parents get paid.
