Being a Foster Carer
People from all walks of life become foster carers - you will need a spare bedroom, a commitment to children, time to offer, energy, 'stickability' when the going gets tough, optimism and a sense of fun.
By becoming a foster carer you will enable Powys children and young people to remain in their county and will be joining a team of carers committed to making a positive difference to the lives of young people across the region.
We consider our carers to be the most valuable asset in the Fostering Service and promise to treat you fairly and with respect. The process of assessment will be open and honest and we will respect the confidentiality of the information that you share with us. Our staff and experienced carers will work alongside you to prepare you and your family for the task ahead.
