Foster carers provide consistency and ongoing practical and emotional support into early adulthood. This prepares the young adults for independence at a pace that is right for them. They have increased chances of success in further education or employment.

About Reach Out Care

Reach Out Care will equip you with everything you need to do a great job and to offer children and young people in your care the best opportunities for living the life they deserve, and prepare them for a happy and independent adulthood.

During the assessment process to become a foster carer with Reach Out Care, you will have the opportunity to discuss the kind of fostering you want to do. Our foster carers receive exceptional training and support to make the role a genuinely rewarding experience for you and your family, and equally positive for the child in your care.

Your marital status, sexuality, age, and other factors like whether you are a homeowner or have a disability, do not impact on your suitability to become a foster carer with Reach Out Care or any other National Fostering Group agency. We are only concerned with your ability to develop and care for a child and to work as part of a passionate professional fostering network.

Once you’re approved, we’ll work hard to ensure children and young people coming into your care are well matched in terms of your existing skills, experience and knowledge, as well as making sure they will fit in well with your living situation.

Our foster carers can claim a wide range of perks and benefits, like free membership to The Fostering Network, Max Cards, high street discounts, invitations to family activities and events, and much more.
