Meet Beth and Ange, Burdekin foster carers who talk about the rewarding experiences of looking after 3 young people in need of a safe and nurturing home. Being a Foster carer isn’t easy, but the impact that consistent caring adults can make in the life of a young person in need is extraordinary.


Jill and Tom began their carer journey years ago, with no previous fostering experience, but with open hearts and minds and a real desire to make a difference.


When Jill and Tom started their fostering journey they had no previous experience and didn’t know what to expect. What they ended up experiencing were the many unexpected rewards that come from just wanting to make a difference.
