About foster care
Fostering is a specialist job done by extraordinary people, and for many it is a life-changing experience.
Being a foster carer means providing a secure and caring home for children and young people, enabling them to develop and thrive.
For some, fostering is a career choice and it is a deeply rewarding one, enabling carers to transform a child or young person’s life.
Although carers receive an allowance for their work, most choose to foster because of the incredible personal and emotional rewards it brings.
