Young people needing homes

notepadAre you interested in becoming a loving Foster Parent for Idea Services? Being a foster parent is about sharing your life with someone with an intellectual disability. It’s about supporting young people to achieve their goals, have fun, try new things and experience life, as well as helping them to meet their disability and day to day support needs.

Foster parents can be on a full-time basis (having a young person live with you), or on a part-time basis providing other full time foster parents with respite, for example two nights a week, or one weekend a month.
