As one of our foster carers, you’ll do more than simply offer a safe home to children or young people. It’s all about providing an environment where children can grow and develop to their full potential, making sure all their health and educational needs are met – even in short term placements.
You’ll be expected to transport children to and from school and contact with their families and protect them from harm. You’ll work closely with a supervising social worker, who will support you every step of the way. Another social worker from the Council’s childcare team supports the child/young person and looks after their general welfare.
