Could you open your heart and home?
We are always looking for foster carers from a wide range of diverse backgrounds, but when it comes to cultural differences, foster carer Amina says to her “Children are children”.
If you would like to learn more please Get in touch. You’ll be supported every step of the way and receive exceptional support, training and benefits.
After volunteering at the Somalia Women's Group, and helping a teenage girl with local knowledge and translating - Amina decided she wanted to help more children in difficult circumstances.
“No matter where they have come from or what their background. Children who come into foster care have been through enough, without adding more challenges in their way. I welcome them all equally with my heart”
“I always focus on what is best for the child, and share the positives and their achievements. It is so rewarding, I have discovered an inner strength I didn’t know I have!
As a single carer, life as a foster carer is very busy for Amina, but she doesn’t feel like she’s on her own. “There is lots of support and training available. Kate, my fostering social worker, is the best person I’ve ever met!”
“My advice for anyone thinking about fostering would be, put yourself forward. Be stronger than the stereotypes that exist. Expand your heart and mind to see the difference you could make”
If you’ve got the passion and commitment to make a really positive difference to a child’s life, we’d love to hear from you.
