So where does Unity Foster Care come in to this?
We are an Ofsted registered 'Good' fostering agency that works with people in your area to help them decide whether fostering is right for them and their family.
Many people would love to foster but feel they wouldn't get approved due to different factors and events in their lives. If this is you, please talk to us and we'll help you make an informed decision about fostering. People with varied life experiences can make excellent foster carers and we're best placed to give you advice.
We support you
We provide loads of support for new foster parents including
Helping you understand:
- The approval process
- What is involved
- How it works
- What happens at each step of the way
- How long it takes to get started
- What you need to provide (you must have a spare bedroom!)
Supporting you during fostering:
- Providing you with advice, guidance and occasionally a shoulder to lean on
- Making sure you get paid regularly and reliably
- Helping you with potential support issues
- Providing you with annual time-off to recharge your batteries
We work alongside many foster parents, who like you, started their journey to fostering with Unity. Read what they have to say about us!
"I didn't think someone like me would ever be able to foster. I have so much to give & I am so grateful for Unity for giving me that opportunity to help a child in need."
