Disability Foster Care

As a disability foster carer you’ll offer a nurturing home to children with complex needs like medical conditions, physical disabilities, learning difficulties or autism. As you can imagine, this type of care is hugely rewarding, because thanks to you, these children will have the support to help them reach their potential.


Why should I consider complex needs or disability fostering?

This is a very specialised type of fostering, but the skills and experience you gain will be invaluable. And of course we will give you all of the practical and emotional support you need to be able to nurture and develop a child with such complex needs.

The children you’ll be looking after will have a range of physical, learning and emotional disabilities. But we will work closely with you, providing specialist guidance and training to ensure that together we can give the child the care and support they need to thrive.

This kind of care is offered from birth until adulthood, and it can be short-term or long-term. And as well as helping the children, you will also be helping a child’s parents with some much needed respite and support, making this kind of care doubly rewarding.
