Welcome to Rainbow Fostering
Our aim at Rainbow Fostering is to enable young people to thrive and achieve their goals. These are children seeking a loving home who have often not had the best start in life. Their behaviour can be challenging, but providing them with support and stability can enable them to flourish. To achieve this, we commit to providing our carers with outstanding support and training. By enabling our carers to reach their full potential, our young people can reach theirs.Therapeutic foster care - another aspect of fostering to consider.
There has been a big rise in the number of children entering care with behavioural and emotional problems. Working with such complex needs means we also need to find people to train to become therapeutic foster carers. We offer outstanding training • as well as the opportunity to gain qualifications. The rates of rates of pay are higher and as a trained therapeutic foster carer you can earn between £25k - £40k. But the real reward is in knowing that you will have played a key part in rebuilding young lives. Please visit our page on therapeutic fostering for more information.

You can make such a difference.
Being a foster carer makes a huge difference to the lives of the children you look after. But, it is more powerful than that: you can change future generations. By providing a child or young person with a stable and secure environment, they learn what loving family life is like. They come to know; because of you, what it feels like to have a home and feel secure - perhaps for the first time ever. If they have their own children, this experience can be passed on to future generations! So, open your heart…open your home…now open your mind and realise you can change very many young lives for the better.
There is an urgent need for people to foster as currently over 7000 new families are needed nationally to meet demand. If you are dedicated, motivated and want to change a child's life for the better and help them find a future simply get in touch.
"I have the utmost respect for the director and staff, who are very supportive and sensitive to the carers needs."

I have found the experience of fostering so rewarding: when I first started it was a little bit scary but I have had a variety of placements. Rainbow are always there able to give support and encouragement and have now found me a long term placement.
As Rainbow Fostering agency has expanded and become more professional, they try to cater for the needs of foster carers and children.
