Foster Care Stories

Foster carer stories

We’re very proud of the foster carers we are lucky enough to have on our team. They come from a broad range of backgrounds and lifestyles, but the one thing they have in common is that they are all passionate about making a difference to vulnerable children. And that’s a quality we look for first and foremost in any foster carer.

Don’t just take a word for it, hear from some real-life foster carers and their fostering experiences. We have over 800 foster carers across our local offices, so here are just a handful of their fostering and training stories and insights. Hopefully they’ll give you a good idea of the rewards and challenges you can expect.
