Becoming an approved foster carer can feel like an intense and lengthy process. That’s why we will be with you every step of the way, offering our support and guidance.
There are six stages to becoming a foster carer and, depending on your circumstances, the process can take about five months. This may sound like a long time, but it’s vital that you’re given all the information you need, so that you can fully understand what fostering involves.
During the process we get to know you and your family. This allows us to determine the qualities you have to offer a child, the areas in which you would benefit from training, and helps us to consider the right placement for you.
