We have over 15 years’ experience of caring for looked after children and we can honestly say that it is the most challenging and rewarding experience we’ll ever undertake. We don’t see it as a job, it is a commitment. A commitment to become an extended family and support the children we take in to find their place and purpose in this world. To listen to them, guide them, support them and protect them as best you can, whilst helping them to develop and become confident and independent members of society. While supporting a child you learn lots about yourself in the process as they enhance your life with their presence. Be prepared to be busy, but be prepared to have fun, live, laugh and cry with them. The best thing a Foster Carer can be for any child they look after is ……….be there, just be there for them! Enjoy the experience, there is lots of support and you are not alone!
