Fostering - Can I be a foster parent?

All sorts of people are able to ask to be assessed as foster carers:-

  • Employed / unemployed / retired
  • Couples / single people
  • With or without children
  • From all ethnic backgrounds or religions
  • Home owners or tenants

We are looking for people who have time, patience and flexibility. You will also need to have space in your home and a willingness to work closely with the Social Work Department. If you have any specific queries – maybe health issues or at sometime in the past you have been charged with offences, you can discuss these with a social worker at an early stage.

People who have been charged and / or convicted of offences against children will not be assessed as potential carers.
