Could you foster a child with a disability?

Right now, there are children with disabilities across Northern Ireland who urgently need foster care. We’re looking for people who can provide these children with a safe and stable home.

We welcome single parents, married or co-habiting couples, as well as same sex couples. And we’re not just after full-time foster carers; we’re looking for people who can offer short breaks too.
