Foster carers needed

People needed to become specially trained foster carers for small specialist team.

Bristol is looking for candidates to join the TFCO (Treatment Foster Care Oregon) team as full time foster carers. This is a full time role in which you need a spare room and no other children in your household under age of 13. TFCO is an intensive foster care programme that works with children aged 7-11, for a 9-12 month period. The children we work with have challenging behaviour, which means the team approach is really important to us. We support carers working with us with every aspect of a child’s life. In the team we have an education worker, skills coaches, a social worker, a birth family worker, respite carers and a team leader. But we need foster carers to make this team complete!

Could this be you? Do you have experience helping children manage difficult feelings, and can work to a structure but be adaptable when needed. If you have experience of working with challenging behaviour, we would like to hear from you.

Full training is provided along with ongoing support from the team around the child. Please email us at tfco@bristol.gov.uk for an information pack or feel free to ask any questions. Salary of £650 per month.
