Northamptonshire Foster Carers Association
We are exactly what it says above; we are set up and run by carers to help and support other carers. Whatever the type of carer you are, the age of your children or their particular needs, there is someone amongst us who knows exactly where you’re coming from!
If you’re an NCC carer then you are automatically part of the NFCA (Northamptonshire Foster Carers Association) and you will receive emails from us – if you don’t, email me email@example.com. We also have a Facebook group to join which is a fantastic resource and, of course you can find plenty of information on the website. You can be as involved as much or as little as you like – but it would be great to see you!
What our Carers say:
“My family and friends offer great support but no-one understands my issues like another foster carer”
“Doing the job we do can feel incredibly isolating. You feel like no-one is listening to your frustrations. Being part of a community of carers makes you realise you’re not alone”
“Going to the Support Groups and Social Events can feel a bit daunting if you don’t know anyone. I put it off for months! But I am so glad I did. I met some lovely people who are now my friends”
Can't find what you need...??
The issues that a Carer has are very many and very varied. We've tried to cover most things but there's bound to be something we've missed. If you can't find it anywhere... drop us an email and if we don't know the answer we'll find someone who does..
