About fostering information.
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. 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 biological parents of the foster child, as that might be a part of the job.
We provide comprehensive information about foster care and help you to reduce the risk of you choosing the wrong fostering agency.
The best fostering agencies.
From your contact form, one of our social work experts will match you and your situation with the most suitable fostering agencies in the South East, on our UK Independent Agency Database.
Different types of fostering, allowance, pay, babies, advice?
Just like people, Fostering Agencies are not all the same. They have different support, 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.
