Fostering Agencies North East
Do you live in the North East of England? Are you interested in doing something to make a huge and positive difference in the life of a child? Oh, and do you have a spare room?
If so, we need to talk.
Many children that come into care have had a difficult experience, as a result these youngsters will usually have complex needs and behaviours. Some are disabled. We usually support children over ten, and we have a lot of parent and child placements, usually where babies come to us with their young parent.
At the moment, we are especially recruiting carers who can offer parent and child and sibling group placements. Fostering can be challenging but knowing that you are guiding a child in the right direction and helping the child move into an emotionally safe area can be extremely rewarding.
We also think it’s important to keep siblings together, so if you have the space to care for more than one child, we’d like to hear from you.
