Journey of a foster carer

It may take you a few weeks for you to decide to contact us, but we encourage you to ask any questions you have – we are happy to chat about anything that is troubling you.

You can call us anytime between 9am and 5pm, you can ask for a call back call, go to our Facebook page. anytime or register your interest in fostering by using our online form.

Once you have enquired and we have all your details, we carry out some statutory checks to make sure nothing stands in your way and then we will contact you.

After a chat and maybe visiting your home, you may decide not to continue or we may advise that you are not suitable right now but maybe wait until something changes in your life.

If you decide to carry on we will invite you to attend our next Skills to Foster Training Course. This will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to become a foster carer.

It can take between four to twelve months to go through everything to become a foster carer, but we help and guide you along the way and we are always available to answer your queries.
