SUNBEAM FOSTERING FOSTER CARE VALUES
The core values of Sunbeam are:
Meet and exceed foster care regulations including national minimum standards.
To provide high quality care and achieve positive outcomes for children and young people.
Deliver strong support to our carers and enhance their skills through tailored training packages.
Maintain a strong financial base to ensure care quality is never compromised and value is provided to Local Authorities.
Recruit and invest in our staff team to provide support to our carers, children in care and to work with Local Authorities.
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.
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.”
