Why Family Care
Join a team that is healing pasts and building futures.
Our mission is to significantly improve the lives of the children and young people we care for.
All the staff and foster carers at Family Care are treated and respected as professionals.
You will be working alongside therapeutic practitioners, support workers, and social workers who you can trust to do their very best for a young person. You will be fully supported, valued, and recognised in the work you do, and you will receive a competitive fostering allowance.
We follow an established therapeutic practice model which you will receive training on. Our therapy team deliver many of our training sessions, and you will get to know our small team on a first-name basis.
Through consultations and training events you will form a professional working relationship with Family Care therapists who bring an abundance of passion, knowledge and innovative thinking to the table.
You will have your own supervising social worker within a fostering team that you’ll be familiar with on a first-name basis, including support workers, administrators and placement officers. We will support you on every step of your fostering journey.
Our annual training calendar allows you to plan in advance so you can attend the courses you need to, and you will receive travel expenses. You will have membership with Foster Talk and the Fostering Network for independent professional support in addition to what we offer.
We are an established, trustworthy agency working hard to promote positive outcomes for the children we look after.
Family Care’s approach to care giving is underpinned by the Secure base model, which is adopted in every relationship we build with carers, staff and young people.
