Making a positive difference to the lives of children with disabilities and complex medical needs
"Fostering can be challenging but it is also very rewarding in so many different ways. If you are considering fostering, you really should speak to Credo Care." – David Suchet, CBE
Helping foster parents to make a real difference to the lives of children with disabilities
Credo Care is the UK's first foster agency specialising in the care of children with disabilities and special needs. Our goals are to raise the standards of disability care for children, reduce the financial burden of long-term residential and hospice care on local authorities and to ensure becoming foster parents is a positive experience for all our carers.
As experienced foster parents, we appreciate the unique challenges that come with providing disability care to children. It can be upsetting for everyone involved when placements aren't adequately supported. That's why we offer all our carers:
A finely honed matching process to pair children with their perfect foster parents - described by Ofsted as the standard that all foster agencies should aspire to.
Full training and professional development, including the Children's Workforce Development Council and NVQ 3 for carers.
Time off and help at home when necessary.
Excellent fostering allowances plus benefits.
We'll ensure that fostering is the exciting new chapter in your life that it can and should be. Our approach has proven so successful that many of our carers have turned fostering into a full-time career.
Please explore our site to find out more about us and becoming a foster parent. We would be delighted to send you a free copy of our new book, 'Making a Difference: How Fostering a child with disabilities can transform their life... and yours'. This special book is intended for anyone who's interested in providing foster care to a child with disabilities. Whether you're a new or experienced foster parent, it will answer any questions you have and enable you to make an informed decision about taking the next step.
We look forward to meeting you!
