Young people come into foster care for so many reasons. They come from all backgrounds, all faiths and with their own needs and experiences.
Almost all will have suffered some type of neglect, trauma and/or abuse, and every one of them is in need of the security, warmth, care and support offered by our Foster Carers.
Foster Carers are needed to give young people in care the opportunity to enjoy their childhood, to provide them with the security to ‘be themselves’, explore their skills and the experience of being carefree.
Young people coming into care may not have been provided with a structured routine, a balanced and nourishing diet, appropriate clothing and the correct health care. For young people who’ve experienced fragmented and unpredictable home life, our Foster Carers give them reassurance, reliability, stability and organisation.
