“Fostering is a rewarding experience as it allows you to actually make a difference for a child/young person. I feel happy being able to make such a difference whether it is for one day or several years.”
We have been fostering for the last 8 years and feel proud to be a part of the Sunbeam family. At the beginning, we thought it’s a tough job, but the skills to foster initial training and the whole assessment procedure to become a carer was interesting, and it gave us both a broad insight into both the tough and rewarding side of what we were likely to encounter.

“When they told me that I had been approved for fostering, well I just cried. I was an emotional wreck and was so happy that I just couldn’t hold back my very, very, happy tears.”
“I have been fostering for 6 years. My fostering experience has been a challenge but rewarding at the same time, especially when the young person achieves. It’s been quite inspirational seeing that child develop where they can reach their full potential, personal and educational goals. The social workers from Sunbeam Pride always supported me and have given me clear guidelines in making me perform my duties to the satisfactory standards. I feel I have made a real effort.”
“Working together is very important. We have been with Sunbeam Pride for 6 years. We have not been with any other agency. We have always been supported and we get plenty of training. Reflecting back about fostering – it is hard work, but rewarding. The best moment is when we see the children improving and when they say they are lucky here. It’s really difficult when they go. We would like to see them beyond eighteen.”
