We proudly welcome people of all walks of life and background and believe that it's your personal qualities first and foremost that will make you a great foster carer. However, for us to accept an application there are some important things we will need to confirm with you, including:
- That you have the time, patience and a secure and stable living situation for a child to join your family.
- You have a spare bedroom that's big enough for a child to be comfortable.
- You are a full-time resident in the UK or have leave to remain in the UK.
To become a foster carer for children with disabilities you will need to have some relevant experience, but we find that experience can come in many forms.
You may have been a parent already or have relevant transferrable skills, learning or practice from past or current careers or voluntary work, which gives you a base to nurture your skills to provide a loving home environment for a child with disabilities.
We will provide you with bespoke comprehensive training for your fostering role, tailored to the needs of the children in your care. You will benefit from a reliable, experienced team and a friendly community of other fostering families for support and guidance.
