Foster carers are choosing Sunbeam Fostering for many reasons. We are proud of our standards and the support and training that we provide to our foster carers. We are driven by children’s needs, which means we take time with every child to tackle the problems they face while encouraging positive behaviour as well as offering support with education, employability, and addiction and self-harm issues. We would welcome you take
the opportunity to speak to one of our existing foster carers to hear this first-hand. We have a good record in maintaining placements and this is due to our excellent matching process at the placement stage and our prompt actions to address any concerns quickly.
