Are you looking for a job with the biggest rewards going? A role where you can make a real difference to a child’s life and one where you are based at home? Then become a Staffordshire foster carer.

All our children are different; different ages, genders, ethnicities and personalities. But they all have one thing in common. They need stability, consistency and a loving family environment so they can develop and grow.

Right now in Staffordshire we need more foster carers but we have a particular need for carers for older children, sibling groups and carers who have no other children in the household. Could you be who we are looking for?

Some requirements:

• You need to live in Staffordshire

• Have at least one spare room

• You need to be 21 or over but there is no upper age limit

• You need to be willing to undertake training

As a foster carer with Staffordshire County Council you'll give a local child a stable home for one weekend a month, on a short-term basis or more long term - fostering with us is flexible. In return, you'll receive outstanding practical and social support to help your foster child to flourish and reach their potential.

To become a foster care you will have a medical check, a DBS check, training and an assessment.

It is a job that is hard work at times but it also offers many rewards and importantly helps change the lives of local children.
