Fostering in Buckinghamshire

The children needing fostering in Buckinghamshire

There is currently a serious short fall of foster carers across Buckinghamshire and there are particularly large shortfalls of foster carers in Buckingham, Aylesbury and High Wycombe.

In Buckinghamshire, we currently need to recruit foster carers for:  

  • Sibling groups of younger children
  • Children age 9+ who need short and long term 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)
  • Children who need a foster carer who can help them to leave a children's home and return to living in a family 

We also provide foster placements for children who normally reside in the local authority areas that border with Buckinghamshire.

Becoming an fp.c foster carer in Buckinghamshire

We are currently working to ensure that there are sufficient foster carers in the Buckinghamshire to meet the need of every Buckinghamshire 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

We particularly require foster carers in all of the following towns; Aylesbury, Amersham, Beaconsfield,  Buckingham, Chesham, High Wycombe and Wendover and adjoining areas - including Milton Keynes.

We are actively recruiting additional Buckinghamshire based foster carers to meet the current high level of demand for foster placements for Buckinghamshire children.

We need to recruit more foster carers in all parts of Buckinghamshire, including: Aylesbury, Amersham, Beaconsfield, Buckingham, Chesham, High Wycombe and Wendover..
