Resilience Foster Carer

Payment: £477.61 per week plus up to £164.99 allowance for the child

Resilience Fostering is your opportunity to change a young person's life. We have an exciting opportunity for individuals or couples who have experience in working with or looking after vulnerable young people to make a real difference.

Resilience Fostering is a unique opportunity where carers provide long term family based placements for young people aged 8-18 years old who currently live in residential care. As a Resilience Foster Carer you would be matched with a young person and support that young person into independence.

The children we've identified desperately need an opportunity to live in a loving family environment and be supported to reach their full potential. 

If you've ever been a residential support worker, teacher or teaching assistant, youth offending service worker, police officer or prison officer or similar professional experience, you could be just the person we are looking for. 

A few requirements include you must: 
• Be able to stay at home as a full time carer with no other employment. 
• Have a room solely for use by the child/young person. 
• Have no other children under the age of 16 in your household. 
• Be involved in training and preparation which leads to being approved as a foster carer. 
• Have experience of working with or looking after vulnerable young people
• Be flexible. 
• Want to go the extra mile.
