Fostering children in Essex & Suffolk is easy with i-want-to-foster.com
Thinking about Fostering? Do you want to help foster children in Essex, Suffolk or London?
There are currently thousands of foster children across Essex, London, and Suffolk who, for many different reasons, cannot live with their birth families. These children are much more likely to have suffered profound neglect and abuse, and they need to find stability with a foster care family, to develop a sense of belonging, clear boundaries and a consistent home environment - can you help?
Help make a difference to these children’s lives and become a foster carer, as you'll then be able to help them recover and progress from their difficult early experiences through long term fostering partnerships.
I Want to Foster is a fostering recruitment agency who help with the fostering process - they are committed to recruiting foster carers from diverse communities to help these children.
So if you have the desire to bring hope, healing and laughter to a child in need of a stable, nurturing home, and feel that you have the qualities required to meet the sometimes challenging demands of taking a child into your life, you could become part of our "family" of foster carers.
You will need the following:
a spare bedroom designated for the foster child - preferably on the same floor as the applicant(s)
no children under the age of 12 living at home
a good command of the English language (for single and both joint applicants)
a robust, local support network
to be in good health - a medical assessment will be undertaken
have a full driving licence and access to a car
joint applicants to have been living together for a minimum of 2 years
