Hear from our carers....
We would love to tell you why you should get into foster care but we think our foster carers would do a better job.
"When we were looking at IFAs, Unity really stood out. We loved the whole set up, how Unity have an upper limit cap on foster carers so that the "family" feel isn't lost. Everybody knows everybody else. When you need to call the out of hours number for support, you generally speak to someone you know and have met. There's a real openness and you really are "one of the team". We have been VERY impressed at the training/support offered. We're REALLY looking forward to a long partnership with Unity, if you're thinking about Fostering ... DO IT! Having an initial home visit holds no obligations and the bubbly Sarah will give you an instant feel of what Unity is all about!"

"We just want to say a massive thank you for everything you've done, you have been a massive support to us both and we can't thank you enough, looking forward to continuing working with you in our journey as Foster carers thank you x"

"Unity seemed to be offering that high level of support for all concerned. I can state unreservedly that we have defiantly made the correct choice for us so far."

How we support our Foster Carers....
You will receive preparation and training from Unity Foster Care before any placement is made. You will be asked to consider the impact upon yourself and your family and of any placement you may consider.
Intensive support will be provided during the initial stages of a placement. This will reduce to monthly visits by your Supervising Social Worker only if, and when the placement is settled. However, throughout any placement, support will be available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. You will also be entitled to respite support to enable you to get a break.
