Fostering

About Fostering

Becoming a Foster Carer gives you the opportunity to make a significant difference to a child's life. If you are thinking about becoming a Foster Carer or are wishing to move from your independent fostering agency, we would like you to consider working for the Isle of Wight Fostering Service as a Foster Carer.

At the Isle of Wight Fostering Service, we believe that children should come first. 

  • Do you believe that children have the right to a secure family life, to feel safe, to be listened to?
  • Would you be prepared to work within a team around the child, advocate on their behalf and support a child with their education?

  • Do you have a spare bedroom?

We provide all our Foster Carers with comprehensive training and on-going support and have confidence that all our Foster Carers provide the greatest influence in enhancing a child's life.

We want local children to live in Island homes to remain in their community.

If you wish to become a Foster Carer or would like further information please get in touch by accessing the 'Contact' tab above where you can send us an email using the 'Send a message to this service' or call on the number provided in the 'Contact' tab.
