“There is an urgent need for more foster carers in Thames Valley.
“We are actively looking for responsible, nurturing adults who have a permanent spare bedroom and can give young people in need of a foster home the support they need to thrive and grow...” said Ian Langley, fostering services manager at FCA in Thames Valley,
“There are many factors that make up an ideal candidate – everything from being adaptable, resilient and nurturing to being a good listener and flexible in response to a young person’s needs.
“Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience.
“We have some amazing people caring for children and young people in Thames Valley and our fostering network ensures that they benefit from the support we have to offer whenever they need it.”
