Fostering in Tewkesbury

We are following Government advice on COVID -19 very carefully and not exposing either our staff, foster parents, young people who those looking to foster to any risk. As far as this crisis allows, it is still business as usual but with amended processes in line with social distancing.

We have some amazing families doing some amazing things with vulnerable young people, but we urgently need more foster parents in your area.

If becoming a foster parent is something you have ever been interested in, please Get in touch with us as we’re happy to have an informal chat with you to share more information on what’s involved in fostering, and to informally discuss whether fostering is suitable for you, your family and your circumstances. We don’t want you to worry about your past experiences, background or sexuality. We are looking for families from all backgrounds and walks of life.

TRUE Fostering is a Therapeutic Fostering working to the Therapeutic Parenting Model of Foster Care. We provide very high levels of support to our foster parent to enable them to provide higher levels of support to the young people they look after.

We offer :-

  • A Therapeutic Parenting approach
  • A team of Specialists providing advice, support and training.
  • Support from experienced Social Workers based in your area
  • 24 hour 365 day a year on call support
  • Good pay for the important care role you undertake.
  • Paid breaks from caring
  • Excellent training
  • Additional support

So, if you can offer a warm loving home to a vulnerable young person in need we’d be keen to have a chat with you.

You need to be over the age of 21, and a spare bedroom is essential.
