If you alreay foster a child who has a disability, join a community of like-minded families who share your experiences.

Fostering Together are an incredible agency to work with. They have genuine passion for ensuring children and young people with disabilities can achieve everything they possibly can, whilst constantly being mindful that every child is different. They provide outstanding support to us as Foster Carers and we wouldn't want to work with anyone else now. – Laura, Foster Carer from South Norfolk

Children come into foster care for a variety of reasons. A family illness, breakdown/problems at home, or a situation where they are neglected or at risk can lead to social services intervening to safeguard and promote a child's welfare.

Sometimes a parent may struggle alone or have an inadequate home environment to meet the needs of a child with disabilities or complex medical needs.

As a result of their life experiences, a child coming to live with you will need extra support to create secure attachments to you. Fostering Together will help and provide training and support on how to be the best foster carer you can be.

Although at times it can be challenging, our community of foster carers will tell you how rewarding it is caring for children with disabilities and how it positively impacts on their lives.
