What Our Foster Carers Say

The important thing for us was the support...I knew I could ring at 5 o'clock tea time, or 3 o'clock in the morning and there was somebody on the end of the phone.

Jen

Manchester

I feel safe, I feel secure.  I feel they know us, and know what we can give to the children out there so I wouldn't do it with anyone else.

Everything is supported along the way. You know what you're going to do, what you'll have in place, and they really help you all the way.

Me and Frank kept saying "we'll do it next year, we'll do it next year, we'll do it next year", and then it was like, we've got to do it!

We had thought about it for years but hadn't made that final step.  We decided that was it, made the phone call, and that started everything rolling.

Paul and Julie

Shropshire

They answered all the questions I had.  They were on the ball and gave you a lot of support so that's what pushed us to Family Care.

Nicky and Richard, fostering since 2019

I saw Family Care advertised on Facebook and messaged them straight away. We had a few concerns about my husband’s health which we were upfront about, and this was dealt with very professionally.

Dave arranged to visit us and explained all about the application. It was very clear and concise and we decided straight away that we wanted to proceed. We didn’t consider any other agency as we liked what we saw and Family Care had such a family, nurturing feel.

At Family Care there is an extended team of support – not just our supervising social worker, but family support workers and therapists too. Fostering like any job has its highs and lows. I would be wrong to say it’s all rosy, but the good days far out weight the not so good. I love the fact that I am living my dream and making a difference to the life of a young person. I would highly recommend it. --- There is so much to think about when it comes to fostering, so usually the best starting point is a friendly chat on the phone.
