Foster Carers required

More foster carers are being sought across Buckinghamshire so young people can be placed closer to their community.

“Foster carers play a vital role in giving vulnerable children the best possible opportunities in life,” said Neil Wood, of the council’s Family Placement Recruitment team.

“Ensuring children are fostered as close to their communities as possible is one way we can achieve this as the child is more likely to remain in their school and maintain vital links with family and friends.”

“There is a real shortage of foster carers within Buckinghamshire, and too often we are placing children out of the county, which is not in the child’s best interests.”

Foster carers come from a wide range of backgrounds and life experience. If you have room and energy in your life to consider fostering, we’re happy to talk to you.

No formal qualifications are needed although skills and experience to meet the needs of the children and young people being cared for are required. All applicants will undergo an assessment process to explore their suitability. You will also receive training and support from the council.
