We are seeking new foster carers.

Our client is a small independent fostering agency with a family feel. They are based in Birmingham but work with local authorities across the West Midlands.

Foster carers do not need to have formal qualifications ??? although they are expected to keep records. They provide training, 24 hour support, including consultations with their psychotherapist and generous fostering allowances from ??17,524 per annum to over ??60,000, dependent on the number and ages of the children you look after.

As a foster carer you will work in your own home so you will need to have at least one spare bedroom that is not used by anyone else.
Children who need to be fostered may have experienced neglect and abuse and so need adults that they can depend on. You can be single, married or cohabiting and foster carers can be gay or straight just so long as you are willing to make a real commitment and to work hard to stand by a child or young person during difficult times.

All foster carers are assessed and an enhanced DBS (police check) and references are undertaken. Carers have to be physically fit enough to be able to care for children and young people and to be emotionally resilient.

However this is the best job in the world if you want to change a child???s life for the better.

To be considered for this excellent opportunity, please apply today.
