What does Purpose Care Fostering Provide?
Purpose Care Fostering is a new agency with over 30 years of experience in social work. We are recruiting foster carers in London and the Midlands who want to make a difference in the lives of children and young people.
Foster care provides children with a safe, secure and nurturing family environment, all allows them to keep in contact with their own families if they wish and if it is in their best interests.
With record numbers of children in care and around 13% of the foster care workforce retiring or leaving every year, The Fostering Network estimates that fostering services across the UK need to recruit at least 8,600 foster families in the next 12 months alone and 7,200 foster families needed in England. There is a particular need for foster carers to look after teenagers and sibling groups.
Increasing the size of the pool of available foster carers is vital.
Foster carers are a valued part of the team. “We treat and view foster carers as professionals,” Carers are allocated a dedicated fostering social worker – and comprehensive training is provided, alongside carer support groups, educational support for children in our care and therapeutic support.
