Hear what some of our amazing foster carers have to say about their fostering journey...
We were inspired to start fostering after discovering how many children are in the care system and need a safe family home.
It is so rewarding knowing that we provide a safe family environment for children who might otherwise grow up in residential care. Knowing that we are able to make a positive difference makes us so happy.
Christine and Allan
If you love what you do, you'll never work again. We're having a great time doing what we love... I think we get more out of fostering than any other lifestyle and career we could have chosen.
Fostering Together are a proactive, dedicated and professional service and there's a personal touch from the team.
The first time we saw him smile and laugh we both near enough cried. The fact that we have made him happy and comfortable is one of the best things ever.
Fostering changes children’s lives and you should be thankful when you have the ability to do that.
Laura and Alex
The first time that we sat with three extra young people around our table and we're all there with the noise is going on, I just took a moment to reflect and thought yes, this is what it's about!
Our quality of life as foster carers is so much better than before. Before we were incredibly busy all of the time, but fostering has enabled us be at home which has meant that we've been able to focus on our children.
