Can I Foster?

Making the decision to become a foster carer isn’t something people make overnight –  a lot of people we speak to worry they won’t be eligible, because of their living situation, sexuality, employment or relationship status.

The truth is, as long as you have a spare bedroom, and have the time and energy to give to fostering a child or teenager then it’s likely you can become a carer.

That’s not to say fostering is easy – it takes patience, resilience and love to change a child or teenagers life… It can be hard but it’s a wonderful thing to do.

If you’re thinking of becoming a carer but are not sure if you meet the requirements then just give us a call on 0208 347 8741 or download our guide at the bottom of the page.
