I’m considering becoming a foster parent

Do you have a spare room?

Do you like/know you're good with kids?

Do you want to make a difference?

Do you want to work from home?

If you answered yes to just one of these questions, then there is a strong possibility that fostering could be the option for you!

There was a time when fostering was just done by charities or people willing to take children into their home on a voluntary basis. This has now changed to something that can be classed as a genuine profession and form of employment.

All this sounds great but why would you want to make fostering your career choice?

One thing that may put you off is the thought of having to look after children, but you can be fostering in Manchester or fostering in London – you will be given thorough training as to how you can look after children. This will mean you will be able to look after the young children properly and ensure they will live a high quality life.

It is different to most other jobs in that it changes the way you live your life. It always keeps you on your toes, and no day is the same. You won’t realise how this will affect you until you get your first child to come live with you, but be assured that if you’re impassioned towards children, you will be perfect to help them come through any of their previous difficulties.

The difference you can make to a child’s life is truly immeasurable. By fostering, you are not only changing your career, you are giving the child the option to follow any career they wish because you will be able to offer them the opportunities they need to take to get there.

It should be noted that foster parenting is not going to be an easy job, but there aren’t many other jobs available that can give you the sense of pride and appreciation that a career in foster parenting can give you!
