We need more inspirational foster carers to provide homes for children and young people across Devon and Cornwall.
Have you always wanted to help out your local community? We are looking for exceptional people across Devon and Cornwall to care for vulnerable children and young people needing a safe and comfortable home.
If you have fond family memories of exploring some of the nation’s finest beaches and rolling green countryside, what better way to inspire the next generation by giving a foster child the opportunity to enjoy similar experiences.
Take a look below at some of the remarkable stories from foster carers near you and become motivated to start your very own fostering adventure with us today!
Edward Thompson and wife Maz have been fostering with the National Fostering Agency as respite carers since 2017. Edward guides us through his recent Two Moors Way trek, as well as talking about the wide range of activities available to the foster children that look forward to staying with them.
National Foster Agency carer Belinda talks about life as a single carer. She discusses how having a wider support network in place can be vital, the benefits of being a single foster carer, as well as how her local fostering support team is always on hand to answer her questions.
Pathway Care foster carers Marlene and Geoff have been fostering for over 40 years! Their fascinating story takes us through the differences in being a foster carer over the years, as well as some of their fondest memories of caring for children and young people in the South West.
Our current foster carers in the South West are making positive change to the lives of children and young people across the region. This is also testament to our passionate and highly skilled support staff who are there to support our carers from the very first step on their fostering adventure and beyond.
