BECOME A FOSTER
CARER WITH MKCC

When you foster, you help them write their future.

Wherever we can, we try to keep families together. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. With more and more children going into foster care, we rely on Foster Carers like you to provide children with a safe, happy, and supportive home so that they can enjoy a stable and secure life.

For any child, leaving their family and entering foster care can be a frightening and traumatic experience which is why your support is pivotal in helping them maintain a healthy and vibrant childhood. Becoming a Foster Carer is a huge, but rewarding decision. When you decide to become a Foster Carer With Milton Keynes City Council, you are making a difference in children's and young people's lives, encountering new situations everyday.

"Most people say ‘I couldn’t do it’ but you can. We have been fostering for four years and we can honestly say after having our own children, it’s the best thing we’ve done. Everyday day is different but everyday has rewards too. Giving opportunities and making memories with children who really need you. It’s a life choice and at times can be challenging but just knowing that we can offer a safe space and the support to a child who really needs is what matters most. We do this for the children and we love it."

Naomi Brock, Foster Carer
