We’re looking for foster carers in Truro
If you live in Truro and have a spare room available and you would like to foster, we are currently recruiting carers from all over Cornwall, but especially anyone who is thinking of fostering in Truro .
There is a particular need in this area to find foster carers who can support over 10 year olds and parent and child.
What is parent and child?
Parent & Child placements are time limited to approximately three months. This is an intensive piece of work where the carer has to integrate a family unit within their own family, whilst at the same time helping to support, educate and encourage parents in their parenting role.
We provide specialist training, and the placement is subject to criteria. As with all of our other fostering placements, support is available 24/7 from our team of expert social workers for anyone who decides to start fostering in Truro.
Parent and child fostering
We also specialise in Parent and Child fostering and we are particularly keen to talk to people who would like to become involved in this sort of fostering.
This is particularly well structured and time limited piece of work during which you will be helping to assess the suitability of a parent’s capacity to care for their child; supporting and coaching them when required to enable and empower them to care for their child. We offer in-depth specialised training to carers for these types of placements.
