Change a child’s life, become a Barnardo’s foster carer
Barnardo’s is one of the UK’S leading children’s charities and in Northern Ireland Barnardo’s Professional Fostering Service has been providing foster placements for the past 35 years. We are based in the Belmont area of East Belfast but work across Northern Ireland. Since 1980 we have fostered over 1000 children and are still recruiting foster carers today.
Barnardo’s Professional Fostering works toward helping transform the lives of the most vulnerable children, many of whom have been through more than they should. We provide various types of foster placements; long-term, short-term, emergency, short breaks, and most recently parent and child. Fostering can make a profound difference to a child’s life and can bring a profound difference to yours. That’s why when you take a child into your family, we’ll take you into ours.
Barnardo’s foster carers come from all walks of life, we welcome all applications, regardless of your race, religion, sexuality or marital status. However, you must be over 21 and have a spare bedroom in your home.
