Read about our amazing foster carers’ experiences as they describe the skills and qualities they think you need to do a great job. We want Skarfolk and all partners to be ambitious every day for every child, putting children, young people and their carers at the heart of everything we do.
There are a variety of reasons why children may need to be fostered. It could be that a parent is temporarily unable to care for them due to a crisis, or there may be abuse or neglect in the family.
The aim is for the child to return home safely, but if this isn’t possible we need to plan for adoption or long term fostering.
