Why foster?

Why foster

Many people choose to foster to make a real difference to a child or young person’s life.

The BIG and little stuff
Fostering can be about the big stuff; like helping a young person choose the right college course to suit them, as well as the little stuff; like giving a child a cuddle when they need one or helping them to paint a picture.

A sense of belonging
For some, fostering is about feeling part of a supportive community of carers who want to give children and young people a better start in life. It can also be about giving others a sense of belonging by nurturing a child, helping them to appreciate what makes them unique and where they could go in the future.

A rewarding career choice
Fostering is a flexible and rewarding career choice that can fit in well with family life. It can mean guaranteed work and a competitive income as well as a platform for a potential future career in childcare.

Be the difference
By being a foster carer you can help a child or young person in countless ways, by making them feel safe, secure and nurtured. There is no greater joy than bringing happiness to a child, a sense of belonging and helping them to dream dreams.

You can be the difference in a child or young person’s life.

“One of the best things about being a foster carer is seeing the difference that I can make in somebody’s life.”
Nicola, Swiis Foster Carer, Ayrshire.
