Make your House a Home - Foster Carers Needed across Devon and Cornwall

“Fostering is so rewarding, it’s the best thing we ever did since our children left home” Lynn and Jake

Could fostering be your next challenge?

Right now, more foster carers are needed in Devon and Cornwall to provide a safe, stable home for vulnerable children and young people in your area.

Fostering takes energy, enthusiasm and the willingness to make a full-time commitment to fostering. If you have previously fostered, have experience in working with children and young people with complex needs, or have relevant transferable skills then we want to hear from you. We offer a variety of placements and in addition to looking for carers for one child/young person, we also need carers for a parent and their child, or sibling children in both cases providing a better chance to stay together.

FCA offers:
• A competitive professional fee up to £397.25 per week
• Paid respite
• 24/7 support 365 days a year
• A local team of social workers, therapists, education specialists and support workers
• Comprehensive, excellent quality training
