AFA are actively seeking new and experienced foster carers to provide a nurturing, loving and caring home for children living in Derbyshire and Derby City and other towns in the area. We need foster carers in Ilkeston, Long Eaton, Ripley, Alfreton, Swadlincote and Chesterfield.
What does being a foster carer in Derbyshire involve?
As a foster carer you will be trained and supported to care for some of the most vulnerable children in society. These children have suffered abuse and as a consequence cannot live with their families. Fostering can be challenging, but is equally very rewarding, especially when children achieve and develop in areas where they have struggled previously.
Children in need of foster care come from all different backgrounds and ages, from babies through to older teenagers. All have gone through some extreme and unkind treatments at the hands of adults. These children deserve to experience stability, loving and caring families lives, where they can thrive and be supported to achieve to the best of their abilities.
