Looked-After-Children come from all different backgrounds and we try very hard to match them with foster carers who reflect their identities, which is why we need foster carers of all kinds of backgrounds and beliefs.
Whether you provide short-term, long-term or respite care, your support and guidance will have a positive impact on the rest of a young person’s life.
There are often misconceptions about fostering older children, but they are just the same as any other teenager and require love and support from a caring adult.
Young people in care will have come from troubled backgrounds which can sometimes result in challenging behaviour.
However, you will receive 24/7 specialist support from our Social Work team and essential training, so you feel confident enough to tackle anything.
Fostered teenagers are at a fundamental stage of life, on the verge of independence, and your guidance and support can help them make the best transition into adulthood.
