Foster Carer in South West England

Fostering is not easy and can often be very challenging; however it can also enable you to make a huge difference to children's lives and can be a very rewarding experience.

Whether you need to work from home due to personal commitments or are just looking for a change in your career, SWIIS Foster Care can provide you with an opportunity to undertake a role which offers you financial benefit and a great sense of personal accomplishment.

SWIIS Foster Care is a national leading Independent Fostering Agency which has been rated Ofsted Outstanding for the high quality service provided to SWIIS foster carers and children and young people in our care.

SWIIS Foster Care is now looking for new Foster Carers in the South West of England to help give children and young people in care a chance at a safe and nurturing home. You will need to have a spare bedroom for the child or young person in your care, and have flexible working hours or be available full time.

Ideal foster carers will have some previous experience in caring for children, be this through parenting or work related experience, although this is not essential as you will receive full training and support from the start.

SWIIS Foster Care provides:
* Full on-going training
* Health advice from a qualified, designated health professional
* Comprehensive round-the-clock placement support
* Education support from our dedicated in-house team (including fully qualified teachers)
* Expert assistance with challenging behaviour
