Foster Now - Fostering In West Berkshire

You're in the right place to find out more about what foster and short breaks caring means for our looked-after children and young people.

You might be already sure about becoming a foster carer and already know the reasons we're such a highly-rated and admired service.  If so, then go ahead and skip to "Your First Step to Becoming a Foster Carer" to start your journey!

However, you might like a bit more information about what fostering means and about our information evenings, or perhaps you might like to hear from our existing foster carers about their experiences. You can find all this information below.
