Work With Talawa
The Talawa home team is full at the moment. Please do send a c.v. to be considered for any future vacancies. We'll post any upcoming opportunities here.
Committed to working closely with children, families and Local Authorities, Talawa provides a warm welcome to any prospective Foster Carers who are interested in working with us.
If you work for a Local Authority and you're interested in finding out more about what we do and how we work we'd love to hear from you.
If you already work in social care we could use your expertise, we employ a number of independent assessors.
We are always looking for dedicated support workers and escorts to provide our carers with the help they need to look after their foster children.
If you work for an independent agency or a voluntary oganisation and are interested in working with us please get in touch, we offer training and consultancy on a wide range of issues.
We're really happy to be working with Talawa as new foster carers. One reason we chose them was because of the high level of support they were known to give to carers which we knew we would need. They make lots of training available and the assessment process is really rigorous. They are a small team so everyone knows who you are and they are always available on the end of the phone 24 hours a day if necessary.
Eva.A, Talawa Carer
Talawa is much like its name, 'small' and 'mighty'. Small in the sense it's a compact, vibrant and tightly run organisation that's clued on to what its roles and responsibilities are. Mighty as in the support they offer to their foster carers. This in turn empowers us with tools and knowledge enabling us to carry out our roles in a more confident and extremely effective manner.
Since Talawa's staff are on hand 24/7, it ensures that most of our worries are laid at rest knowing help is only a mere phone call away!
