Independent therapeutic Fostering provider
We are By the Bridge. We ARE Therapeutic Fostering
By the Bridge is a well-established independent Fostering Provider with excellent relationships with our Yorkshire Local Authorities. With more than 100 years of Therapeutic experience and expertise across the Therapy team, we have designed our therapeutic service, specifically to provide our Foster Parents with the support and knowledge that they need to be the best Foster Parents that they can be; and to offer the best care and understanding to their children. As a By the Bridge Foster Parent you will be equipped with the skills, tools and resources that you need to provide the best care and support to your children.
Foster Parents open their homes to children and young people who cannot live with their own family for a period of time. Some children don’t get the best start in life, and may have suffered neglect or abuse; or witnessed traumatic events. But all it takes is one amazing Foster Parent to make that difference, to help them feel safe and valued. If you are looking for a more rewarding career that will change your life and the life of every child that comes into your home, then becoming a Foster Parent with By the Bridge could be for you.
Foster Parents come from all walks of life. There is no single type of person who makes a ‘perfect’ Foster Parent so we welcome applications from everyone; regardless of your marital status, ethnicity, sexuality, religious belief or whether you are a homeowner or not. If you have a spare bedroom and want to make a difference, get in touch for an informal chat today.
