“We’re particularly keen to hear from people who could care for sibling groups of children. Unless there’s a good reason for separating brothers and sisters, it’s something we try to avoid at all costs. Unfortunately, there aren’t always enough foster carers who can provide the right space in the right place and regrettably, siblings are separated” explains Sue Lappage, Area Manager.
“Then there are our teenagers. Sometimes, people shy away from thinking about caring for teenagers, but that’s such a shame. After all, they’re still just children. They still need the same care, support and comfort as their younger counterparts. And the best thing about fostering teenagers is that you can talk things through with them, giving you the golden opportunity to have a positive influence on their personalities, their ambitions and their futures.”
“It’s fair to say that a fair amount of people who wish to foster ask us about fostering babies! Of course everyone loves a baby, but there is a growing demand for foster carers for both babies and their young parent. Always time limited, parent and child placements are aimed at helping new parents to offer their baby appropriate care. Carers providing this support are offered additional training and support.”
If you have a full, clean driving licence with regular access to a car, if you willing to take a different, more therapeutic style of parenting, and, ideally, experience of supporting children and young people or of working in the care profession, we need to meet you!
We’ll welcome you on
Monday 15th May at 1 The Old Dairy, Elm Farm Business Park, Norwich Common, Wymondham NR18 0SW, back at our own office but for longer, this time. Drop in at any point between 10am and 3pm for light refreshments and a chat.
