Live in Hertfordshire and interested in fostering?
Rainbow Fostering works alongside many local authorities aiming to settle ‘looked after children’ into secure, supportive and loving homes. The children and young people we work with often have emotional needs which means carers need energy and time to give to a child. We are currently looking for people interested in fostering across the Hertfordshire area. We are one of the leading UK private foster care agencies dedicated to finding stable homes for children and young people. If you are seriously considering fostering you’ll be pleased to know that Rainbow make a broad range of training courses available. We commit to ensuring that our carers receive the training they need to foster with confidence and enjoy the rewards fostering has to offer. We arrange our courses to make attendance easy and convenient.
The Britain of the twenty first century is a diverse society made up of many different religions and faiths. This means we have children and young people coming to us from many different backgrounds. Their needs will always be varied and we look to find carers who can provide the best match. Children can sometimes have special dietary needs they need to observe for religious religions; or they may need to observe particular religious ceremonies or festivals and in such instances carers are required to provide support.
We would like to hear from you if you live in Hertfordshire and are considering becoming a foster carer. The process is simple and we provide our applicants with support at all times. For help and guidance please call us or send an email – its easy see the panel below. We would stress that before you can be considered for fostering a child or young person you will need to have a spare room.
When putting children or young people forward for fostering, we try to keep them within their local area. This means they can stay at their school and any disruption is kept to a minimum. It also means, where appropriate, they are able to keep in touch with family and friends. When you have a foster child you are expected to give them support in meeting their educational goals. It also means providing the kinds of experiences children would generally expect so we make allowances available for visits and day trips. Hertfordshire has some great places to visit including Hatfield House, The Snow Centre and Warner Brothers Studio Tours featuring the making of Harry Potter.
There are many reasons why you should become a foster parent: research indicates that over 9000 new foster families are needed. Opening your heart and your home can turn the life of a child or young person around and along the way provide you with many rewarding experiences.
Call or email: we are a friendly team so if you are interested in becoming a foster carer, or are already fostering and considering transferring, we’d love to hear from you.
