I have been fostering with National Fostering Group for 15 years - that in itself speaks volumes. There's lots of support from the agency, supervising social workers and fellow carers and that's important to me.

We have regular local training courses, support groups and a carers' website, which you can access once you're an approved foster carer. We also meet socially for coffee mornings and lunch. Come join us - you know you want to!
