Can I foster?

Qualifying to foster

You can be married, single, male, female, unemployed, employed or retired. We welcome applications from people of every ethnicity, culture and religion. You may be a homeowner or tenant. Every applicant will be considered on an individual basis.

We do not rule out working foster carers but would prefer one foster carer to be at home at least on a part time basis, or to have flexible working conditions in order to be available when needed.

You will need a genuine desire to work with and care for a child or young person. You will have the time, commitment, patience, energy and understanding to help a child grow and develop.

If you…

  • are passionate about making a difference for a child or young person
  • are over the age of 21
  • have a furnished spare room that is not used by anybody else
  • have the right to live permanently in the UK
  • are committed to undergo training and development

…then we would love to hear from you! Contact our team on 0151 3910547, or click below to enquire online.
