More people like Catherine’s foster parents, who offered their hearts and home to a vulnerable young person, are needed in Portsmouth.
We welcome foster carers from all backgrounds, regardless of nationality, relationship status, or religious beliefs. There’s no upper age limit, and you don’t need to own a home. Prospective carers must be at least 21 years old, have a spare room, some experience with young people, and a lot of patience, resilience, and a positive outlook. We offer our foster carers fantastic allowances for the children in their care, thorough training and continuing 24/7 support, access to the award-winning Mockingbird model of care, discounts and benefits, social activities, and free membership to The Fostering Network.
There are many types of fostering and you’ll be able to find one that’s the right fit for you. This could be a short or long-term arrangement until they’re ready to live independently or be reunited with family, support for unaccompanied children seeking asylum or children with a disability, supported lodgings to develop their independent living skills, a parent and baby placement, or respite care.
If you have further questions to ask, give us a call on 023 9283 4071 or email us at email@example.com and a member of our team will answer any and all questions you may have.
