Helping you grow professionally
We’re committed to your personal development and offer a wide range of training courses, including mandatory topics, such as Safeguarding and Child Protection and Secure Base, as well as more advanced and specialist courses, such as Autism, Theraplay, Child Sexual Exploitation and more.
You don’t necessarily need experience to become a foster parent as our training programme will give you the skills and knowledge you need to make an extraordinary difference. You will, however, need to have the right qualities - resilience, passion and endless warmth and kindness.
Generous allowances and benefits
You’ll receive a generous fostering allowance while a child is in your care, designed to recognise your professionalism and commitment. We also offer other benefits, such as allowances for birthdays and religious festivals, as well as two weeks paid respite.
Plus you'll have access to our rewards platform where you can find hundreds of discounts to some of your favourite shops, restaurants and family experiences.
