Foster Carer

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, fostering can provide you with an opportunity to undertake a role which offers you financial benefit and most often a sense of personal accomplishment.

Do you have the skills and qualities needed to be a foster carer? If you have:
* A spare room in your home
* A positive outlook
* Have flexible working hours or are available full time
* Have a strong desire to help vulnerable children and young people achieve positive outcomes
* Live in London, Croydon, the South of England and South West England then SWIIS Foster Care would like to hear from you.

Great foster carers transform the lives of the children in their care. You don't need to be married or have a big house. You'll need optimism, a sense of humour, plenty of energy, listening skills and a welcoming home, but foster carers come from all walks of life.

SWIIS provides:
*Full ongoing 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
*Paid holidays
