Why foster with Five Rivers?

Five Rivers supports you in every way to make every placement a success. We draw on years of experience to support and guide you, with help and training designed on the experiences and feedback of numerous successful foster carers before you.

As a Five Rivers foster carer you will receive:

  • a dedicated social worker who will work closely with you to help you in your role as a foster carer
  • 24/7, 365 day a week support from qualified social workers
  • training and personal development opportunities throughout your fostering career
  • access to specialist clinical and educational services when needed to work with those living with you
  • membership of a local foster carer support group, and other opportunities to gain mutual support from other carers
  • professional fees and other benefits such as paid holidays that reflect the complexities and status of being a foster carer.

We have regional offices across the country supporting our Foster Carers on a day-to-day basis.
