Role: Foster carer
Hours: Start times vary. May involve 01.00am starts to accept emergency placements, or attending a variety of meetings throughout the day, but usually full-time, (and we MEAN full-time).
Salary: Dependent on the number of children in placement and their needs.
Location: We are looking for foster carers throughout the south of England to care for vulnerable young people from their area.
Job Purpose: Provide a supportive, stable, caring home environment. Almost all of the children in our care will have experienced some form of abuse or neglect, and may not know what it is like to be in a happy, functioning family home. Your job is simple. Show them what one is!
Responsibilities: You must have:
You do not need: ·
By joining Blue Sky Fostering you will become a professional, highly trained carer (also driver, chef, part-time therapist and, hopefully, stable source of love and understanding) who has the opportunity to take a child who may have had some dreadful, complicated experiences in their young life, and show them they are important and that the world cares about them.
You do not need any specific education, or to have an immaculate past (as long as you are honest with us about it), but you must be wholeheartedly committed to improving the lives of young people we place in your care.
This could be teenagers, sibling groups, children with additional needs, neglected or abused children and in some cases, a young person with a child themselves who needs support and a positive example to follow.
We provide you with full training, and all the advice you need, as well as introducing you to our support groups and partnering you with a supervising social worker, not to mention your local hub staff, all of whom are there to help and support you. It’s not your average job, but it’s worth it.
