The Fostering Network has reported that every 20 minutes, a child goes into care in the UK. At Boulder Shack, we really value, and are proud to support foster carers who provide stable homes for children who cannot live with their birth families, and warm supportive environments for young people to thrive in.

We’re honoured to announce that we’ve been working with Southampton City Council to become a Fostering Supporting Business. This means that we now have additional support in place for staff wanting to become carers, plus we will be providing free entry to all foster carers and free shoe hire to everyone in their care from 1st March 2022!

Becoming a foster carer

If you are aged 21 or over, have a spare room and have childcare experience (either professionally or personally), you may be eligible for fostering.

If you are interested in fostering and would like to know more, go along to Southampton City Council’s drop-in fostering information events. Whether you want to hear from a foster carer about their experiences, have questions about the assessment process, or the training and support on offer, their expert team and experienced foster carers will be on hand to answer all your questions and provide valuable information and insight.
