Support for Foster Carers
Being a foster carer is rewarding yet challenging. Remember you are not alone. We understand that to provide top-level security and stability for your foster child, you need to be fully supported by your agency. Fusion Fostering always include our foster carers as a valuable member of the Fusion team – caring for your future in the same way we care for our young people.
We have flexible and creative support arrangements available for our foster carers. Identifying and arranging the necessary level of support occurs when a child / young person and foster family are ‘matched’ at the placement planning stage. At this point, we can assess the individual needs of the family and decide on a support plan that suits you. The support is then monitored and adjusted throughout the placement as required. We are here to listen to and help you every step of the way.
One of the major benefits of choosing an independent agency is the level of support you will receive. We aim to form a really strong relationship with our carers, offering continued guidance and helping in your development throughout your career with us. Happy foster carers means happy foster children!
As well as the support you will receive from us, there are other independent groups you can contact if you need further advice. Feel free to speak to Fusion Fostering about any issues you may have, but if you wish to speak to someone different, please find contact details below:
