How to become a foster carer

Step 2 - we visit your home

Once we have chatted with you about fostering and you feel ready to take a step further, we'll arrange to visit you in your home. We'll talk in more detail about fostering and provide you with more comprehensive information and explore things further.

This visit allows us to find out about you and your individual circumstances and allows you to ask us anything and everything about fostering.

We can also arrange for you to talk to one of our existing foster carers if you would like, so they can give you the real-life low down on fostering. We have many carers who are happy to do this and love to share their fostering experiences.
