Fostering - what we need from you

We need people with the right skills and qualities to be able to give vulnerable children the best possible care.

It doesn’t matter if you’re married or single, straight or gay, own your home or rent, work full-time or are unemployed. You do need to be over 21 and fit enough to care for a child, with a spare room in your home and no convictions for crimes against children.

You’ll also need the commitment, patience and realistic attitude to take on this challenging role. You’ll need to be responsible, flexible and friendly. You’ll need to be able to provide a stable and supportive environment so the child in your care feels happy and safe.

Some child care experience is helpful whether that’s working with children or bringing up your own. You’ll need to have the time to give a child the support they need, help them keep in contact with their families if appropriate, and to attend training when required.

Whatever your background, it’s the qualities you bring to fostering that count.
