Fostering Teenagers

Fostering a teenager can be an extremely rewarding experience.

Teenagers in Foster Care may have experienced trauma, abuse or neglect, using different mechanisms to prevent further hurt.

As a Foster Carer for a teenager you could help them build up their trust and support them as they move into adulthood. All young people have untapped potential and you can help build their confidence and positivity for their future lives. 

We need carers for children of all ages but one of our greatest needs is carers for teenagers. Local teenagers need you to come forward so that they can stay close to the people and places they know and love.

Girl on swing

We love the fun that the teenagers we have fostered bring to our home, we believe that they keep you younger. The best thing of course is the appreciation they eventually express.
