Our social workers in the Gloucester office provide fantastic support to our foster carers in the South West region. With each social worker being registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, you can be sure of the highest standards of support.
In this area the standard fostering allowance is £409.50. This may vary depending on the type of young person in your care.
Our social workers will call and visit you often to provide support and you will also have access to a 24/7 support line should you need it. The social work assistant in your team can also provide additional support and you can attend Carer Support Groups and training in your local area, either at a nearby office or a venue convenient to you.
We are always on the lookout for foster carers in the South West especially in counties such as Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, Herefordshire, Oxfordshire, Swindon, North Wiltshire and North Somerset. The children and young people in need of foster care in these areas come from a wide variety of family settings and include young parents with new born babies who are in need of some guidance, so there is a real chance to make a lasting difference to young people in this area.
We have regular events for you to attend in the South West area. Click here for more details.
