New Roads foster care

New Roads foster care involves working paid shifts in one of our residential care hubs in Norwich and Dereham. This is so you can develop a bond with a young person before you:

  • Provide full-time or respite care for them in your home, or
  • Support their return to their family home

The young people you will be working with are:

  • In care,
  • On the edge of care, or
  • At risk of their care plan or family relationships breaking down

As a New Roads foster carer, you can help prevent this. You can help young people find the stability, security and nurturing environment they need to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

After 12 months care in your home

We may reduce your placement fee to the standard or enhanced placement rate. This will depend on an assessment of the young person's needs.
