You will meet new friends along the way and have the opportunity for personal and professional development.

As a Hampshire County Council foster carer you will:

  • Receive generous allowances and extras for holidays, birthdays and Christmas
  • Be a part of a supportive community
  • Obtain free training by experienced trainers
  • Change a life forever

Right from the word go, our assessing social worker made us feel at ease and comfortable during each of our weekly discussion meetings. From the outside, it can appear to be a daunting process, but rest assured, the support received throughout makes it all worthwhile!
