How long will it take to have my first fostering placement?
There is no set time to get your first placement. It often depends on your criteria and availability to foster. If you are a full time carer who can take children aged 0-18, and are very flexible then you should receive your first placement very quickly, in a few weeks.
If you are a carer who works full time, who can only take well behaved 17 year old French women, then it may take a bit more time to find you that perfect placement.
