Fostering Professionals in the Midlands

As with all of our carers, our Midlands based foster carers are given a robust package of financial and practical support, including regular visits and phone calls, meetings, visits, and training sessions. Quality foster carers require quality support. In the end, we hope to ensure quality outcomes for the children entrusted into our care who have enjoyed the benefits of a loving and stable environment.

Why do we need foster carers in the Midlands?

It’s extremely important for the young people and children we look after that we’re able to provide them with a home which isn’t too far from where they currently live. This is because we need to minimise the trauma involved for young people who are already going through a difficult period in their lives. If they can stay in the same area as their friends and families, we will wherever possible try to make this possible. As such, if a child comes from the Midlands it is highly likely that we will look to place them in a suitable foster family in the same county, city or local area.

Midlands Fostering: what next?
