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.

Fostering during lockdown


We appreciate it has been a very tough year for many families, but we are still continuing to support our carers and our children and young people.  At BCP our carers never feel unsupported with over 500 online courses available, online support groups and virtual support from a clinical psychologist.  If you would like to know more please click here.
