Even if you don't think this is for you, there's still a way to help the children in our care!
If you know anybody who is interested in fostering, you can recommend us to them and you could receive £500 for every foster carer you recommend!
Here's some of the qualities we love to see in our carers:
Non-judgmental attitude, wanting to care for the children whatever their difficulties
Warm, welcoming and positive personalities, helping the children adjust to their new home
Having nurturing and encouraging attitudes, being empathetic and caring
Stable, resilient and emotionally strong, enabling them to support the children in their care
Patient and self controlled, the ability to remain calm when dealing with challenging behaviours
Flexible, and open to being in and working as part of a team
Trustworthy and honest, ensuring the children in their care are safe
Being fair and reasonable, especially in approaching boundaries and discipline
Willing to learn, to improve skills, knowledge and understanding
Motivated to develop, allowing them to adapt and meet the needs of the children in their care
Professional, and aware of the boundaries between themselves, the children and the child's family to ensure safe caring
How is it paid?
Upon receiving a referral, we will contact the individual and go through an initial enquiry to ensure they meet the requirements needed to be a foster carer. Following this, we'll do a home visit and assess that the home is suitable. After this we will start the Form F assessment and the case be reviewed by a registered manager and if approved £150 will be paid.
The remaining amount of £350 will be paid after the newly approved foster carer has their first placement for 4 consecutive weeks!
