Supporting Neglected Children

Ever thought about becoming a Foster Carer?

Many dream of doing something life changing but often they doubt that they can do it.  This January, Action for Children would like to encourage people to come forward and talk to us about changing their career and becoming a foster carer.

One foster carer said: ‘Action for Children make an extra effort to get to know their foster carers which in turn gives them the understanding of each carer’s needs.  I would not want to work with any other fostering agency.  They are the perfect team.’

Previous surveys have shown that:

  • When comparing fostering with their previous career, 85% stated they are more satisfied or much more satisfied, with 77% stating they would recommend fostering to others.
  • Where they had fostered with other providers (predominately local authorities or trusts), the support provided scored highly compared to their previous provider. 61% said it was ‘much better’ and 19% said it was ‘better’.

Do you have the following or know someone who has:

  • a spare bedroom
  • plenty of time
  • energy
  • a commitment to be there for as long as it takes

Action for Children will support you every step of the way by offering 24-hour helpline, training, generous fees and breaks.
