Support from the council

Becoming a foster carer is one of the most challenging, as well as one of the most rewarding, ways of making a difference to a child’s life. We are here to support you with every step of your journey. Once you have been approved, support for you and your family is available when needed.

We pledge to support you as a foster carer and will make sure you are:

A valued member of the child’s support team

Clear about what you are expected to do and your responsibilities as a foster carer

Always part of the fostering decisions made for children

Matched as well as possible to the foster children placed with you

Well trained and supported

Confident to say no to a placement

Involved in plans about children’s contact with their family

Able to ask for help

Able to question decisions

Given enough information before a child comes to you

Aware of the child’s needs, behaviours and background when children arrive

Earning a fair and reasonable income as a full time or part time foster carer
