the story of

Stacey: Combining full-time work and fostering

“I’m Stacey. I’m a civil servant so I work full time. Home life is fab. Just me and my daughter, so, single parent.

I didn’t become a foster carer because you get paid to look after a child. I became a foster carer to make a difference in a way that that child, whether it be a week, or a couple of weeks, months or years, that I’ve made some sort of stamp on their life.

Why foster with your local council? I know if I pick up a phone and make a call, I get what I need back. If I need help or guidance, (…) someone will help me through that.”
