In Somerset, our priority need is to recruit parent and child carers for new mums who need support to care for their new babies
As preferred providers of foster placements for Bristol, Bath & NE Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Gloucester County Council, we regularly receive referrals for children needing placements in these areas.
In the NE Somerset area, we also need to recruit foster carers for:
- Sibling groups of younger children
- Children age 10+ who have higher level needs
- Children age 10+ who need to remain with foster carers until they are independent
- Children who have mild and moderate level learning difficulties
- Children who have more complex disabilities
