More people every year are looking to improve the quality of their working lives or are being forced to start a new career which means they can consider doing something they are more interested in. Fostering is being considered as a job which provides a reasonable income and which enables people to become self employed and to work from home.
Although many foster carers choose to look after children from time to time, such as respite or short term foster carers, there is a national shortage of foster carers who can be available full time and the more available foster carers are, the more fostering placements will be offered.
A fostering career can be short term or life long. Foster carers, choose the service they want to provide which suits their family circumstances and the income they are looking to receive.
There are also Independent Fostering Agencies as well as the Local Authorities. We carry a number of both Local Authorities and Private agencies on this site who are always keen to talk to new/potential carers.
