Whoever you are and however you found Chrysalis Care - “welcome”.

We welcome people from all backgrounds to foster for us, as this enables us to offer a diverse range of foster homes for children and young people. You don’t need to be married, employed or have a big house but you do need a spare bedroom and space in your life and your heart to help vulnerable children and young people who may be in crisis. 

The children and young people cared for by Chrysalis Care foster carers come from all backgrounds, are aged between 0-18 years, could be from any ethnic and cultural group and are referred to us for a range of reasons ranging from neglect, through to a parent being hospitalised. Whatever the background of children and young people referred to us, we need to be able to provide nurturing homes with our Foster Carers, within stable foster families.
