Why do people become foster carers?

Carers say they decided to foster children because they wanted to make positive changes in their lives and to experience the satisfaction of seeing the children they care for settle down and start thriving. Carers said they wanted to feel a sense of fulfillment from doing something worthwhile and making a difference to a child’s life.

Different types of fostering, allowance, babies, children?

Just like any other organisation, fostering agencies are not all the same. They offer different levels of support, carer’s allowances, quality of training, and access to respite care and support groups.

Not all agencies foster babies, some prefer to look after teenagers, some agencies expect you to be at home full time, others are happy if you have another job.

Foster children.

The children and young people who need to be fostered come from all backgrounds, they might be single child, siblings or a young mother and baby.

Many children will have suffered abuse or been neglected, have medical problems or a learning disability.

Many will have had unstable childhoods, times of broken parenting and traumatic experiences which have taught them to be confrontation or withdrawn to cope with often a confused view of life. They have difficulties making real friends and understanding how to be part of healthy relationships.

Love and support is essential, but the job of a foster carer includes family safe care policies with rules and boundaries, working with often lots of other people and helping to find and to use the right services children need immediately and to improve their chances in the future .

Let’s get together.
