About the job

Are you looking to foster in Northern Ireland?


We’re looking for warm, caring people who want to make a real difference. Become part of our friendly and professional team.

With extensive support and training, you will be helping young people who may have experienced neglect, abuse or trauma, or multiple moves throughout their lives. We are also recruiting part-time carers who can provide support during holidays and weekends to our full-time carers.

You will need to be over 21 years old and have a spare room that could be dedicated for a child or young person under 18 years.

You don’t have to be a parent yourself but you do need to have the skills to look after children who have had a difficult start in life and who may find moving to a new family scary.

Your work as a foster carer is complex so we pay fees to reflect this, as well as allowances to cover care and leisure costs. 

At Action for Children we celebrate diversity because we know our children are all different. We need carers from all walks of life so you can be married, co-habiting, in a same sex relationship or single. Gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, religion and community background are all important parts of who you are that can help us to make the right match between carer and child.

At Action for Children you will be joining a charity that always puts children first and where making the right match is the most important consideration.
