Futures for Children began with two social workers, both of whom had been foster carers, who decided to offer a better service than other independent agencies and local authorities were providing."
We're pleased that you would like to register your interest in fostering with Futures Group.
To give your application the best chance please ensure you meet the prerequisites below:
Have a spare bedroom
Are over 21 years of age (there is no upper age limit)
Have experience interacting with children or young people
We're always looking for foster carers from different cultural, religious and racial backgrounds, single people, couples (whether married or living together, with or without children).
Together we can make a difference in children's lives.
Futures for Children provides, through a flexible, caring and imaginative foster care service, an opportunity for all our children and young people to become valued members of tomorrow’s society.
Looked after children represent the most disadvantaged and vulnerable members of our community. At Futures for Children, it is our objective to provide support and conditions in which these most vulnerable young people can thrive and achieve a positive outcome from their time spent in foster care.
There is much work to be done to redress the disadvantages these children have experienced and little time to do this before they become independent young adults.
Fostering can be a challenging task but it is also one of the most rewarding. Here at Futures for Children, we are committed to working with you to help children get a better chance in life.
