Search is on for volunteer foster carers

Have your say

A HUNT is on to find volunteers willing to foster looked-after children in the Rotherham and Doncaster areas.

In charge of the search is a leading independent agency Sunbeam Fostering, which has opened new offices in Worksop.

Sunbeam, which has an outstanding rating from Ofsted, works with over 275 families who provide foster care for children and young adults.

Project manager Linda Beaumont said: “We are actively looking for people who can care for children in need. We desperately need more foster carers for children of all ages in the local area to ensure continuity and stability.

“Fostering is a way of providing family life for children and young people who are unable to live with their parents. This allows them the chance to thrive in a safe, secure, loving and caring home environment. The children and young people placed with foster carers are from a diverse range of backgrounds and will display different behaviour depending upon their experiences.”
