Fostering FAQs: Why Do We Need Foster Parents?

Q. Why do we need foster parents?

A. Because every 20 minutes a child comes into care needing a foster family

There are 65,000 children in foster care which is 75% of all children in care, more than are in residential or adopted.

If fostering is something you have been considering, now is a good time to apply. It can be a big step to take, but we are here to help you and will make your application as smooth as possible.

Why choose Mosaic Foster Care?

We are a unique therapeutic foster care agency.

SMILE is our integrated therapeutic approach which supports, and helps enable, our foster parents to deliver therapeutic parenting. The term therapeutic, according to the Cambridge dictionary means, “causing someone to feel happier and more relaxed or to be healthier”. Many of our children have had a difficult start in life and therefore our aim is to make them happier, more relaxed and healthier and this will help them to develop their education, hobbies, interests and social and emotional skills.

How do young people benefit from our foster parents' therapeutic parenting?

We do this by recruiting great people.
