Need for Foster Carers in Midlands
At Sunbeam, our first priority is the needs of our foster children and it is extremely important that we are able to provide them with the best match possible. As such, when children removed from their families and moved to foster families, they undergo a lot of trauma; therefore finding them a close matched family within their area will support them and have less impact on their lives as they will be able to stay in their local school, be able to see their friends etc.
This can only be achieved by recruiting foster carers in the local regions. Hence if you are someone who is looking to become a foster parent then complete our call back request and we will progress your application as soon as we can.
As one of the largest and most progressive independent fostering agencies based in , we provide quality family placements to children in our care and competitive foster care allowances to our carers.

What foster carers are saying
This job is probably one of my favourites. Every day is different, every day has new challenges and every day has new rewards. It’s not always easy but each challenge you go through with the child bonds you and makes you both stronger for each other.
Hannah and Kashif
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.
“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.”
“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.”
