Who can foster?

There are hundreds of children in London who are need of a foster family, but not enough foster carers.

So, who can foster? We think everyone should be able to be a foster carer, as long as you can provide a warm, loving, nurturing and stable home for a child.

There isn’t a lot that would stop you from fostering. The only thing we would say you definitely couldn’t foster, if you have a conviction that is sexual or child related.

So, as long as you have a spare room, and the time to give, you could be a foster carer. Why not give us a call today to find out more? Or why not download our guide to fostering?  It  covers questions that frequently come up when people are thinking about becoming foster carers.
