Foster carers needed in your community

Central Bedfordshire Council is appealing for people and families to come forward and do something incredible by becoming foster carers.

Julia and Michelle have been fostering for 5 years and look after teenagers, they say it’s been the best decision they ever made:

We have always had a great rapport with young people through our jobs so thought we’d give fostering a go. It’s been the best decision we’ve ever made, we love it! The young people can sometimes be shy and withdrawn when they arrive but we give them space and time and let them express how they feel when they are ready. We have a good network of friends and family to support us but you get plenty of support from the Council too, there is always someone on the end of the phone to help you.

If Julia and Michelle have inspired you to find out more about fostering check out our website, give us a call on 0300 300 8181 or drop us an email fostering@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk. We welcome anyone interested in fostering to get in touch to find out more.
