Who can foster?

There is no such thing as a typical foster carer.  Our foster carers come from all sections of society with different backgrounds, interests, and personalities.   The most relevant and special thing that bonds them all together, is their ability to provide love and care to a child who needs it the most, as well as the desire and capacity to make a difference to a child’s future.

If you are interested in fostering, over 21 and have a spare room we would love to hear from you!

We often speak to people who are interested in fostering but think they won’t be considered for reasons that are simply not true.  You can be single or married, male or female, a homeowner or renting, of any sexual orientation, have your own children or not, have pets, practice a religion or not - the list goes on.  So please don't rule yourself out!

"The thing I love about fostering is that it doesn't discriminate, anyone can become a foster carer"

Maria, Foster Carer
