Ten thousand vacancies for foster carers
The UK has a shortfall of ten thousand new foster carers every year. This adds to the immense pressure on Local Authority Fostering Teams to find safe placements for their children.
However, there are thousands of UK foster carers who have vacancies for foster children. Unfortunately these are not used because their Agency cannot match their carers with the children referred to them by the Local Authority.
Not being used to their full potential leads to frustrated foster carers who feel let down, and this can cause the relationship with their Agency to suffer. However, the lack of placements is usually because the Agency is not receiving the referrals from the Local Authorities that match their foster carers.
We help you to reduce the risk of choosing the wrong Fostering Agency. Using the information you give us, a social worker will find the agencies on our UK Fostering Agency Database who are likely to be the best match for you and your family.
