Parent and Child

Suffolk County Council need more Parent and Child Carers.

If you're a current Suffolk Foster Carer and could consider expanding your offering, then we'd love to hear from you.

In 2009, Sam and Matt, parents of five, decided to start their fostering journey as they wanted to provide a loving home for children in need. A friend introduced them to fostering and they began doing short break placements, but their path eventually led them to parent and child fostering.

Read more about their experiences here.

Without my time in their care, I wouldn't be the mother I am today. They truly gave me the tools to cope with life and motherhood.
