Here at Sunbeam we have support groups for everyone involved in fostering. This includes you as part of the fostering household. You are a huge part of the fostering house and we are here to support you too.
We arrange fun activities for sons and daughters of foster carers. Come along and meet other young people in the same situation, share your feelings on your family fostering and make some new friends.If you have any ideas for activities let us know and we will try our best to arrange this. We have previously had movie nights, bowling, day trips, meals out and other fun activities.We will also arrange days for the whole family and would love to see you all there.
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.”
