The Fostering Network recently appealed for more foster families across England. Almost 6000 new foster carers are required to keep up with demand. The new foster families will join more than 44,000 families that already foster children in England. We are sharing the appeal and we’d like to remind you all that we are always hoping to recruit new foster families or welcome transferring foster carers to our agency.
Our independent fostering agency in Worcestershire and our foster families are located in the West Midlands. We’re here to talk to you, share our information and help you make the right decision for you and your family. If you decide to join our agency, we provide round the clock support, ensuring no one feels alone or unsupported. By providing support and training we know that our carers will provide the best outcomes for the children.
The Fostering Network have highlighted the need to find families that are able to look after:
• Children with disability
David Sinclair from The Fostering Network said that there are plenty of people that don’t think they are able to be foster carers, but often they really can. The children that are in care have often experienced traumatic starts, may have been neglected and witnessed things that should never be seen. Because of this, it’s important to remember that foster care is more than being a parent.
In March 2017, there were over 53,000 children living with foster families across England. Please get in touch with our friendly team if you would like to provide the care and support for some of the most vulnerable children in the West Midlands. Our team will help you to understand more about what’s involved and the process of becoming foster families. You can also find plenty of information by visiting The Fostering Network website.
