Disability Fostering

Fostering Children with Disabilities

Fostering a child with disabilities can be rewarding in so many ways. When you foster with us, you will become part of a community experienced in the care of children with additional needs including physical disabilities, learning difficulties, complex medical needs, sensory impairments and autism.

It is so rewarding knowing that we provide a safe family environment for children who would otherwise grow up in residential care. – Christine & Allan, Foster Carers

Disability foster carers say...

Laura, who is a qualified special needs teacher, and her husband Alex became foster carers in 2017

"The first time we saw our first foster child 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
