Fostering in Ealing

Ealing Fostering Agencies.

Fostering can be a rewarding career both ethically and financially. However, choosing the right agency for you can be a minefield. All fostering agencies provide different levels of training, support, respite, and even pay. Some fostering agencies do not foster babies. Choosing a good fostering agency that will meet you and your family’s needs is the first step to a successful fostering career.

Factors to consider before deciding to foster.

Before deciding to become a foster carer there are a few things that should be considered. Along with the training and support provided by fostering agencies, you should also check if you have a personal support system with friends and family that can support you under stressful situations as all foster children are not the same and as a foster carer, you may have to tackle difficult situations.

According to your family and personal circumstances, the age group of foster kids needs to be considered. The needs of children vary based on their age and understanding which is why you should be prepared to be flexible.

Flexibility to work with social workers is important as they visit on a regular basis. Foster carers need to be comfortable communicating with the biological parents of the foster child, as that might be a part of the job.
