Who can foster?
When it comes to being a foster carer and fostering a child, it’s your personal qualities that count. The children and young people referred to Family Fostering Partners come from many different backgrounds, which is why we are proud to work with foster carers who are equally diverse.
Apart from a few basics, there really aren’t any hard and fast rules about who can foster. You do need to be over 21; have a spare bedroom, and be able to provide a stable home to a looked after child or young person in need. If you tick these boxes, then you might just make a brilliant foster carer.
So why not just forget the myths and contact us to find out whether fostering could be for you.
