Have you got what it takes to be a foster carer and help others?

Could you offer a child a home in a secure family environment? If so, Argyll and Bute Council needs you!

The local authority is looking for foster carers who can look after a child or children either for a temporary period while plans are made for their future or for an extended period if they are unable to go back to their families.

It is particularly looking for foster carers for teenagers and for sibling groups who need a temporary home where they can all live together until a decision is made regarding their future.

The council needs respite carers who can take children for brief periods to support full-time carers and shared carers for families who have children with additional needs. It also needs supported landlords who can offer accommodation and support to young people leaving care.

If you think you could be a foster carer then contact 01546 605517 or fpduty@argyll-bute.gov.uk.
