'Refer A Friend' Rewards

If you are a foster carer or a family-and-friend carer, you will know how personally rewarding it is to help shape a child’s future if their birth family isn’t around for short or long period of time.

If you can think of a friend or family member who would be a great foster-carer, why not tell them about us and benefit from our ‘Refer a Friend’ Reward Scheme? You could receive up to £800 for every person you refer.


Refer a friend to Shining Stars Fostering and you could receive a £800 reward when they get approved.

Did you know that when our foster carers encourage someone to make an enquiry to us, they are more likely to become an approved foster carer?

With your first hand knowledge and experience of what it takes to be a foster carer, you are in the perfect position to spot people who have the qualities to become a foster carers.

How to recommend someone

Do no hesitate from telling people about the great work you do – there might be people just waiting to be inspired by you! 

When you know someone who is interested in fostering, give them our contact details and your name or ask them to complete our online enquiry form. Once they get in touch and say that they have been recommended by you, we will record your name with their enquiry and in order to track their progress.
