Fostering in the Midlands
Around 30,000 more children come into care over the course of 12 months. Fusion Fostering is looking to recruit new and passionate carers to join our growing team in the Midlands.
Fusion pride ourselves on our dedication to improving outcomes for children and young people. Everything we do is intended to help improve stability and safety for minors. No other issue is as important to us as the child’s welfare. We can only make a difference with help from a diverse range of carers with differing experiences, thoughts and opinions!
The demand for foster families is ever-growing. With carers retiring every year and more children coming into the care of local authorities, it is important to continue to recruit to keep up with demand. The Fostering Network predicts that 820 new carers need to be recruited in the Midlands in the next 12 months to meet the needs of the region.1 We are determined to find passionate carers to join our network so that no child finds themselves without a home.
Foster carers provide a safe, loving and secure home for minors across the UK. They take on the responsibility of care for that child in every way, from their general health and wellbeing to education and personal development.
As a foster carer, no two child placement’s will be the same. Different placements will have different needs which will, in turn, require different skills from you as a foster parent. We provide specialist training to help you deal with difficult circumstances or challenging behaviour from children. Ultimately, in this job, you get to work from home doing something that you (hopefully) love!
Many children and young people need to be taken in by a foster family. Young people can be taken into care for a variety of reasons, because of this, it can occur at any age. Toddlers through to young children and even teenagers may need to be looked after by a foster carer. Sometimes, children with complex health needs or disabilities will be taken into care. Other times, children may have behavioural issues or attachment issues that need to be considered.
Foster families provide a safe place for these vulnerable youngsters, no matter what their background is.
The 14 different local authorities across the region which stretches from Gloucestershire in the South to Stoke-On-Trent in the North, this includes:
