July 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Independent Fostering Agency, Blue Sky Fostering are looking for foster carers in the Bournemouth area. There is currently a shortage of 10,000 foster carers nationwide and the agency, recently rated Outstanding by Ofsted for the second time, are hoping to find people who are interested in learning more about the role at their free one day training course in Bournemouth on Wednesday 24th August. The course will dispel some of the myths about who can become a foster carer and outline the benefits such as a weekly allowance, 24/7 support, ongoing training and the opportunity of having a more fulfilling and rewarding career.

Sarah Rockett from the Blue Sky team, who will be leading the course says: "Some people may not have considered fostering as they may feel that they do not have the skills to be successful. However, as long as you have a spare bedroom, a driving license with access to a car, some experience of childcare or working with children and the desire to make a difference to a local youngster's life, fostering could be a great new direction for so many people."

"There is no such thing as a typical foster carer, we need all types of people whether married or single, from all types of backgrounds to reflect the diversity of the youngsters who need support. We thought we would organise this course for those who are looking for a change in career or who are uncertain about their employment future during these difficult times. We hope that it will help the attendees to decide if it is a career path they would like to consider either now or in the future."

Places on the course which will take place at The Bournemouth Learning Centre are limited and are filling fast so reserving a place is essential. To book your place call Katrina on 0845 6076697 or email For more general information about becoming a foster carer visit
