Fostering

Fostering with us

Fostering is a service which provides a secure and caring home for children and young people who are unable to live with their parents. All children from Bracknell Forest who require care come through Bracknell Forest Fostering. They can be of any age, up to 18 years. By fostering through us, you’ll be helping prevent children having to move out of the area unnecessarily through a shortage of local foster families.

Fostering can be hugely rewarding and, with Bracknell Forest, you’ll never be short of support. We truly value our foster carers, have great relationships with them and do our very best to ensure they get the most out of fostering. That’s why we provide continuous, local training, as well as regular visits and 24 hour telephone support, not to mention a competitive financial allowance of up to £425 per week for each child you foster. What’s more, we host regular social events and you’ll gain a great support network of other local carers.

Here’s what some of our current foster carers say about fostering with us:
