Become a Foster Carer

What will the foster children be like?

Where do we begin! From sibling groups to children with special needs, to teenagers; they’re all individuals!

If we have to generalise, we’d say they’re all a bit bewildered and anxious (this shows in many ways).  They’re unsure and they’re vulnerable.  Most will have experienced neglect in some form and some will have experienced some form of abuse.

The most important thing to say is that they are still just children. They just haven’t had the security, stability and care to enable them to thrive and achieve their goals; this is where you come in. You will be the person who gives them all those things and gives them back their childhood. Don’t worry, we’ll be there every step of the way to support you, offer you guidance, training and our time. Everyone in the Blue Sky office is there to give you their time, a listening ear and help. That’s our job.
