Ask 1 Person
We are asking council, education, health and emergency services colleagues to start conversations in the workplace about fostering and to talk with each other about whether they would make a good foster carer.
Could you help a Southampton child? This could be respite care for a weekend or looking after a child for a longer period of time. There has never been a better or more important time to help us find more loving foster homes for children who need them. If we don’t ask, who will?
Becoming a foster carer is subject to an assessment process, but all applications are valued and are treated fairly and respectfully.
You can find out more about fostering with us on our webpages, or if you’ve had a conversation with a colleague and think you have what it takes to make a great foster carer, then please do get in touch with us for an informal chat to find out more.
