Fostering children with additional needs

Children in speech therapy

We are looking for professional foster carers to care for children and young people with behavioural, physical or emotional needs.

You may work in a school or have social care experience and be skilled in advocating on behalf of a child, or you may work in healthcare and be used to liaising with professional networks such as JIGSAW (Children with Disabilities Team).

We need your unique skills, combined with compassion, understanding, patience and willingness to make a real difference to a local child or young person that may need a high level of support and understanding.

In return, we can offer training, on-going support, short-breaks, direct payments and personal budget schemes. There is also potential for funding towards home adaptations if required.
