Can I foster if I smoke?
We don’t exclude people who smoke from being foster carers, although they are only allowed to care for children over 5.
We also have rules about not smoking in the house, nor in a car a foster child might use. We understand that smoking is not illegal, however, we need to balance this with a child’s right to live in a smoke free environment.
We’d love to hear about your experiences or comments below.
Our short guide to fostering answers lots of questions, and is packed with useful information.
