Respite / Part-Time Carers

More than ever before, our children need to experience family life.

We are still safely recruiting foster carers and are looking to expand our fostering family. Get in touch if you want more information.

Evergreen Foster Care is based in Staffordshire and affiliated with highly regarded Bluebell School (Kidsgrove), Hopedale School and Children’s Home (Leek), Heather Field School (Stafford) and Lavendar Field School (Crewe) .

Have you always considered fostering but have not been in a position to commit full-time?

Have you been fearful of fostering and would like a stepping stone into the world of fostering?

Have you thought about how you and your family can enhance a child’s life and provide them with valuable opportunities?

Have you talked with your family about how you can support a foster child?

Do you have regular, spare time over-and-above your current job?

Do you have a spare room and feel you can offer a child who has had a difficult start in life, another opportunity?

Being a Respite Carer for a child with Evergreen Foster Care is a well-paid, part-time professional role.

Our Respite Carers are supported with an allowance of £8,500 per year or £129.80 per day (virtually tax free)*

Children will join their Respite Carer on a fortnightly basis on a Friday evening through to a Sunday evening. Children would also be offered an additional 10 days during school holidays.

We want you to build an exceptional relationship with a child, therefore, all respite is planned and with a child matched to your family.

Respite Carers will be fully trained and supported and will work collaboratively and effectively with the main carers.

*Based on 65 days per year. Other packages available.
