In Isle of Wight, we currently need to recruit carers for
We are currently working to ensure that there are sufficient foster carers in the Isle of Wight to meet the need of every Isle of Wight 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 shortfall of foster carers, of all kinds, on the Isle of Wight. If you live on the Isle of Wight and are thinking of fostering we would very much like to hear from you.
