Want to foster?

Margaret

Margaret has fostered with us for five years. Discover her story.

Ordinary people make extraordinary foster carers.

It really is that simple.

You don’t need to be married to foster. Or in a couple. Or straight. You don’t even have to own your home.

In fact, our carers come from all sorts of backgrounds. But they do have a few things in common. They’re patient, enthusiastic and dedicated. And truly committed to the children in their care.

Sound like you too? Brilliant. Because that’s what you need to become a foster carer – that and a few other things.

Start your fostering journey

Before you apply to become a foster carer, there are a few things you’ll want to think about – like the affect that fostering will have on your own family and the fees and allowances you’ll receive.

But you can forget the myths. It doesn’t take a superhero to be a foster carer.

Just people like you, an agency like us and the best support there is.

What our carers say...


“When her plan was changed to long term fostering, Lisa and I decided that we wanted to be considered. We wanted to ensure that Amy would be placed with carers she knew and who knew her.”
