Thank you to the pupils from from Holy Trinity Primary School, Taunton who helped us make this heart-warming video about #fostering and the huge difference love and care make to a child’s life.
Like and share from our Facebook and twitter pages ‘Fostering in Somerset’ @fostersomerset to spread awareness of the need for great #foster carers in Somerset.

We need a minimum of 40 foster carers this year for children of all ages?

• All you need is to be over 21, have a spare room and time to give to a child a stable and loving home.
• There is no upper age limit.
• We have an improved offer for foster carers including excellent support and training, extra discounts on shopping and travel and a very competitive weekly fee in recognition of the care foster carers provide.
• We welcome people from all backgrounds and ethnicities, those who are single, LGBT, renting or if you have children of your own already – we would love to hear from you.

What do I get out of fostering?
-Competitive weekly fee and allowance
-Great training and support
-An amazing sense of well-being – knowing you’re making a difference to a child’s life!
