Could fostering suit your lifestyle?

Everyone in the educational sector
The county council team can answer questions and provide further information about fostering

It's foster care fortnight (9th to 22nd May) 

Could you become part of a family of foster carers who are passionate about improving the outcomes for Oxfordshire’s children?

By fostering with Oxfordshire County Council, you’ll be helping local children and families who may be having a difficult time.

You could consider relief care, supporting teenagers or assisting a new parent and their baby to make a positive difference.

There are two main ways we support you:

  • You could receive a welcome payment of £1,500, to help you make the transition to foster carer.
  • We provide 24/7 dedicated social worker support.

Find out more about how you can help to nurture and care for a child or perhaps you can share this message with colleagues, friends and family members?
