Fostering a Child - Changing Futures Fostering

Fostering a Child

Getting Ready to Foster

  • We understand that fostering a child is a big decision to make, but we also know that it is unimaginably rewarding
  • What support do we offer to those thinking of fostering?
  • What do you need to consider before becoming a foster parent?

Fostering is a Rewarding but BIG decision to make!

The most important thing you can give a young person is that there is a ‘we’, no matter what.

Across the North East, we know there are hundreds of people who would make fantastic foster parents, people with the right qualities and skills to provide a child or young person with a stable, nurturing relationship and a loving home environment.

We also know that big life-changing decisions take time to think about, and for others keen to foster right now, they are simply not in a position to do so, such as not having a spare room.

That’s why we offer a free support package that keeps you supported and progressing on your path to becoming a foster parent.

Support To Get Started

Everyone starts thinking about fostering under different circumstances but what they all have in common is the desire to change a child’s future. Our Keeping In Touch package provides you updates, training videos and much more whilst you progress into a place where you can foster.

We’ll also put you in touch with a member of our team who you can speak to regularly. They’ll get to know your circumstances and give you and your family personalised support so you can reach your fostering aspirations.

Once your circumstances have changed are ready to foster our team will help guide you through the whole process to becoming approved. You can read more about that process here.
