This Foster Care Fortnight we’re calling out for more foster carers in the North East, Yorkshire and the East Midlands to get in touch to find out more about becoming a foster carer with us.
The theme for this year’s Foster Care Fortnight is ‘Time to foster, time to care’, and we are urging those interested in fostering to take the time and make the next step to become a foster carer.
Figures released by The Fostering Network show that there is a need for 1,900 more foster carers to cope with the number of children coming into care across the North East, Yorkshire and East Midlands, and with a child coming into foster care every 20 minutes; these numbers are set to increase.
At Team Fostering, we are looking for foster carers from all walks of life who want to make a real difference to a young person’s life. We would be particularly interested in speaking to foster carers who want to provide care for teenagers and sibling groups.
As a not for profit agency, we invest any money made back into outstanding support and services for foster carers and children and young people. In our recent Outstanding inspection report (March 2016) Ofsted said “The Agency provides high quality foster care to children and young people with complex needs. Children and young people enjoy family life. They develop positive relationships with the adults who care for and support them, and consequently they thrive and develop, often over and above what was expected”.
All Team Fostering carers have access to our round the clock on call system managed by our team of Social Workers, an extensive calendar of training courses designed to equip you with the skills and confidence to meet the needs of our children and young people, and activities and holidays for you as a fostering family. In addition you will be provided with a generous fee and allowances to support you in the role as a foster carer.
We provide a range of fostering types including our specialist fostering placements; Wraparound and Evolution, all providing continuous support and training tailored to meet the individual needs of the children and young people. Our specialist fostering placements would ideally suit carers with extensive skills and knowledge in providing care for vulnerable young people.
If you are interested in fostering we would welcome you to get in touch with us at Team Fostering. We know that each person’s situation is different and quite often talking in through with someone can be the first step to becoming a foster carer.
If you would like to get in touch you can make an enquiry on our website or get in touch with one of our local offices across the North East, Yorkshire and East Midlands. We would love to hear from you!
Take the time this Foster Care Fortnight and make the next steps to becoming a foster carer.
