Fostering in Bracknell

The children needing fostering in Bracknell Forest

In Bracknell, we currently need to recruit carers for

  • Sibling groups of younger children
  • Children age 9+ who need short term placements
  • Children age 9+ who need long term/ permanent placements
  • Teenagers who need to remain with foster carers until they reach independence
  • Children who have mild and moderate level learning difficulties
  • Children who have more complex disabilities
  • Parent and Child Placements (Usually mother and child)

Becoming an fp.c foster carer in Bracknell

We are currently working to ensure that there are  sufficient foster carers in the Bracknell, Easthampstead and the surrounding area to meet the need of every Bracknell child who needs a foster placement. This is an important goal because local placement allows children to continue at existing schools, retain contact to friends and family and in the longer run it can facilitate arrangements for a child to return to their family where this is the right plan for the child. There is currently a very significant short fall of foster carers, or all kinds, in Bracknell. 

How our Bracknell foster carers are supported 

Our Bracknell based foster carers are able to attend foster carer support groups and training in Bracknell, at  Theale,in Bekshire, in Woking  and at our local social worker office base in Winchfield, Hampshire.

Our Bracknell foster carers are supported by locally based staff to ensure that they receive high level support at all times. If you decide to join our team, you will be working with an agency that has consistently been accredited as an "Outstanding" by  OFSTED.

Our work with Bracknell Forest and the Berkshire Unitary Authorities

Our fostering agency is an accredited Tier 1 provider of foster placements for all of the Berkshire Unitary Authorities and all of the neighbouring local authorities.   We have been providing foster carers for Bracknell children for over 17 years. Our Tier 1 status means that Bracknell Forest Council and other Berkshire unitary authorities refer children to us first whenever a foster placement is needed for a Bracknell or  wider Berkshire child. This means that if you live in or near Bracknell and decide to foster with our agency, you are likely to be kept very busy.

If you live in Bracknell and are thinking of fostering,  we would really like to hear from you. Thank you for your interest in joining our  Berkshire  fostering team
