Why foster siblings

 Here are some great reasons to think about fostering siblings:

  • You will be helping to keep a family together
  • Brothers and sisters who can stay together in foster care are generally happier and more content than those who have to be separated
  • You will be helping multiple foster children at the same time

We need foster carers to look after groups of siblings in Buckinghamshire.

When normal family life is disrupted for whatever reason, we aim to keep sibling groups together wherever possible.

This means we need foster carers who have the room and time to look after multiple children from the same family. Going into foster care can be a frightening prospect for any child but knowing that they can stay with their brothers or sisters during this time can make a huge difference.

The skills and experience you need to foster siblings is no different from those needed for general fostering but you may need more space in your home and more time to devote to each child.

We will offer all the support and training you need and you will be given allowances and payments to reflect the number of children you are looking after.
