Could you be their hero too?

As we all at Portsmouth City Council celebrated D-Day 80 earlier in June and now marking the national Armed Forces Day on 29 June, at Foster Portsmouth we also would like to take the opportunity to thank all our Armed Forces – serving, veterans and cadets – as well as the families who support them.


Our world-class Armed Forces work tirelessly to defend the UK and protect our people all day, everyday. Many of the skills gained training or serving can be hugely beneficial as a foster carer. Combined with life experience, they could enable you to change a child or young person’s life so you not only make a difference with your career, but at home too.


Whether you might consider a short or long term arrangement for a child or siblings until they’re ready to live independently or be reunited with family, support for unaccompanied children seeking safety and asylum or children with additional needssupported lodgings to develop their independent living skills, parent and baby placements, or respite care, you’ll find the right fit of fostering for you and your family.


Anyone aged 21+ with a spare bedroom could foster with Foster Portsmouth regardless of their age, gender, faith, ethnicitysexualitymarital or work status, or whether they rent or own their own home.


Foster carers receive excellent, local training and 24/7 support, including through our mentoring scheme and pioneering Mockingbird Programme support network, and competitive fees and allowances.


We need more foster carers in and around Portsmouth from diverse backgrounds who can offer their heart and home to vulnerable children and young people from our city. If you could make a positive difference to a child’s life and you’re interested in becoming a foster parent, we’d love to hear from you.


Could you be their hero too?
