Foster Carers - Middlesbrough & Hull

Location: Middlesbrough & Hull
Salary: Up to £625 per week

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY FOR THIS POSITION IF YOU HAVE NO SPARE BEDROOM OR BIRTH CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 5.

There is a huge shortage of Foster Carers in Middlesbrough & Hull and, "Action for Children" are recruiting carers to help give children and young people the support and care they need to thrive and develop in a safe and supportive environment.

If you have a spare bedroom, enjoy being around young people and would like to join a friendly and supportive team that changes the long term future of children in their care: then we want to talk to you!

A national Non for Profit charity, we are looking for people who are understanding, resilient and can develop trusting relationships with children who may have had traumatic experiences.

As a Foster Carer, you will benefit from:

  • Outstanding 24 hour support
  • Extensive training and development
  • Paid planned breaks
  • Careful matching
  • Competitive pay
  • Support groups and Social events

To become a Foster Carer you will need to possess the following:

  • Experience of working with or caring for children - this could be through family contact, being a parent, volunteering or employment
  • A spare bedroom in your home and be over the age of 25
  • Energy, commitment, willingness to learn and ability to see behind behaviours
  • The ability to care for a child full time in your own home and able to prioritise fostering over any other roles (if you are considering part time - there might be opportunities too)

We value our carers. 91% polled in the past year say we have made their job easier and 85% prefer fostering to their previous job. As a leading children`s charity we put people before profits.
