Unless there are special circumstances, children requiring foster care are not generally moved from their local area. This means they face as little disruption to their lives as possible being able to stay at their school and keep in contact with family and friends. Looking after foster children means making a commitment to their education and taking them on ‘days out’ for which allowances can be paid. If you can provide foster care for children, Southampton has a wide range of interesting places to visit. These include: The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Calshot Castle,solent Sky Museum, SeaCity Museum and the Woodmill Outdoor Activities Centre.

There is a national shortage of foster carers: currently over 8000 new foster care families are needed. The demand is huge so there will be a real need in Greater London for carers: contact Rainbow as we are one of the leading independent foster care agencies.
