We are looking to recruit supported Lodging Carers for care leavers & Separated Children Seeking Asylum in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

Supported Lodgings Carers offer opportunities for young people to develop the necessary skills and confidence they need to enable them to live independently.  This can often make a huge difference at an important time in a young person’s life.  Some of the young people may be leaving carers whilst others may be unaccompanied asylum seekers.

Providing a home for a teenager can also give you many of the same rewards as fostering, such as knowing you’re making a difference, but also allows you to continue with your work and other activities, because the young people are more independent.

Allowances are paid and there is a comprehensive package of support - all available to you locally.

To find out more about fostering and the various types of fostering visit www.bcpcouncil.gov.uk/fostering, call 0800 009 3084 or email bcpfostering@limetreemarketing.net
