Who can Foster

We need foster carers who can remain focused on the needs of the child or children in their care at the most stressful times in any child's life


Children who need to be looked after come from different backgrounds and this needs to be reflected in the foster carers who are available to us.


We have foster carers who:

  • are married with their own children living at home
  • have no previous experience of looking after children
  • own dogs and other pets
  • are single and their children have left home
  • are in same sex relationships
  • work part-time hours in another job
  • have retired from work
  • come from different ethnic backgrounds
  • rent their house
  • work for the local authority
  • are child-minders
  • actively practice their own faith
