Specialist Foster Care Roles

Every carer who looks after a child in care is special, however our Specialist Carers provide an extra level of care to some of our most complex and traumatised young people.

We’re looking for Specialist Foster Carers, with the right experience, qualifications and relevant skills to offer dedicated care to a child or young person in care with SEND or complex behavioural or emotional needs in their own home.

Make a difference to a young person's life and be part of a professional team in a full-time, well-paid role.
