The Fostering Network is calling on all fostering services in the UK to implement a foster carers’ charter, as its latest report on the status of foster carers highlights that foster carers are not treated with the respect and value their vital role warrants, and not given the support they need to help children thrive.

We know that it has been extremely challenging for our foster carer members over the last few years, not least due to the impact of Covid-19.

To address these challenges our stress support service will be extended to a 24 hours a day, seven days a week-service provided by BACP accredited counsellors.

The changes to this service will take effect from Monday, 7 February 2022.  

The phone number will remain the same, but as always, we suggest you save it in your phones: 01384 889 549.
