Check if you can foster

The first step to becoming a foster carer is ensuring you meet the basic criteria and registering your interest. Complete our eligibility checker and submit your details to us.

Check if you can foster

If you would like to speak to a member of the team please call 0800 0730 418.

After you’ve expressed an interest, you’ll be invited to an information session where you can speak to social workers and some of our existing foster carers to gain a better insight into the role of foster carers. We will be able to confirm your eligibility.

If you then feel ready to start the process, a member of our team will visit you at home to undertake an initial assessment and offer further advice and information to help you and you your family decide if fostering is for you.
