SUPPORTING TEENAGERS Teenagers – we’ve all been there! Looking after teenagers can be challenging but it’s a hard time for them too. We are looking for people who understand the needs of our young people and can be there for them through the highs and the lows and support them on the journey. If you want to make a difference to the lives of teenagers, become a foster carer. We will be there to support you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. To help you develop as a foster carer we provide an extensive training programme, which includes the opportunity to gain the Level 3 Diploma for the Children & Young People’s Workforce. We pay top rates, which increase as you develop your fostering skills. Our rates for teenagers range from £320 to £447 per week for each young person you look after. We also need people to look after children of other ages. Information sessions are your opportunity to find out more. Our next sessions are on 7 July, 4 August and 8 September at Ealing Town Hall. To book your place or for more information please contact us. BE THERE. BE AN EALING FOSTER CARER. Call Freephone 0800 731 6550 or email fosteradopt@ealing.gov.uk
