Foster Care Fortnight
Case Studies

Many people are deterred from fostering as they think that only very particular kinds of people can foster but this simply isn’t true. What we are looking for in BCP from our foster carers is somebody who has the right qualities to give children and young people the secure, caring environment they need.


Who needs fostering?

Just like our foster carers, our children are all ages and from all backgrounds.  Around two-fifths of children in care are aged 11 to 15 years.  Finding foster carers for teenagers is a key priority for us at BCP Council.

Be a part of our fostering community

Our carers never feel unsupported and have identified that one of the most important aspects to them is a sense of a ‘fostering community’ with a team of experienced professionals and a foster care buddy scheme. If you would like to know more – please call us on 0800 009 3084 or fill in our online form.
