Can You Foster?

You'll only really know by trying it

Everyone is different, so it’s difficult to give you an answer about whether you can be a foster carer without getting to know you.

There are 2 quick questions you need to be able to answer yes to before taking the next steps in fostering:

Do you have a spare bedroom: Yes

Do you have the right to live in the UK indefinitely: yes

There is 1 question you need to answer no to:

Have you been convicted of a crime against a child, or a crime of a sexual or violent nature: no

That’s great. Then the next step is to arrange a call with James, our recruitment officer. He’s available on 020 8347 8741

I know other non GLF carers are shocked at how much more I get to foster, to basically do the same as them. Some have even transferred as a result.

Luckily we have a lot of experience, so can usually answer them honestly. We are really happy to have an informal chat with you, about fostering, whether you are suitable, and what it’s really like. So why not arrange a 15 minute call – we promise you it will save you several hours of searching the internet for answers, plus, we really love talking to people about fostering.
