Spend More Time with Your Family Through Fostering

Happy Foster family: mother, father, children son and daughter on sunset.

When we talk about fostering, the focus is often on the children that will be coming into your care, which is entirely reasonable. After all, helping those children is the main reason foster carers enter the profession to begin with. Being a foster carer is a hugely rewarding job, as you provide vulnerable children with a safe and loving family environment for either a short period of time or throughout their childhood. Aside from that, there are other tangible benefits you get from being a foster parent, such as being able to spend more time with your family.

No More Missed Moments

Modern life is hectic enough at the best of times. So many of us get up early to go to work and end up staying at work late to provide for our families. In doing so, we often miss out on the little things, like taking our kids to school and spending quality time with them in the evening. Those long days soon start to snowball, and you find yourself missing out on weeks, months, and even years of family life before you know it. If that sounds all too familiar, maybe it’s time to take control by changing careers to becoming a Foster carer.

Flexible Working

Thanks to its flexibility, fostering gives you more time to spend with your children as well as the children you are fostering. Reclaim your time and spend it at home with the people you love. You can do the school run every day, be at home to help with their homework, or enjoy each other’s company. There’ll be no more worrying about the daily grind and getting through an endless list of work-related tasks. Fostering will be your paid job, letting you concentrate on your family.

A Noble Career Change 

Fostering is one of the most selfless things you can do as a family. If you’ve already got children at home, you know how much a stable, loving environment means to them. Fostering is your chance to extend that experience to another child—one that really needs it. You will be giving them something they need more than anything else—something only you can offer. Not only does it feel great to be able to do so, but you’ll get paid for it too.
