Could you be a Foster Carer?

As a Foster or Kin Carer you may have the ability to change a child’s life by providing a safe and loving home.  United Synergies has opportunities for long-term, short-term and respite care for children in the local community needing placement with a suitable family.

Foster carers are allocated a Case Manager who they will have regular face to face and phone contact with. Their allocated Case Manager is only a phone call away. Case Managers visit Foster Carers and children at least monthly and are provide Foster Carers ongoing and individualised support and training. Financial support is also provided.
