Other benefits of working with fosterplus
We’ve put together a great allowance and benefits package to recognise your professionalism and reward your commitment.
With a massive range of training courses to choose from, we’re able to create a tailor-made programme to meet your interest and needs.
"Our ethos at Fosterplus is very much around providing continuity to the children and young people we care for, so they feel safe, secure and able to build nurturing relationships with their foster families while maintaining positive connections with their birth family too.
We achieve this by carefully matching children and young people with foster parents who can meet their individual needs and provide a loving home for as long as it's needed. We also ensure that our foster parents receive the support they need to overcome challenges and establish long-lasting relationships with the children they care for.
We're fully committed to #KeepingthePromise and are working hard to make ongoing enhancements to the services we deliver to children and young people in our care." Chrise Grundy Hoban, Head of Operations
