how long does it take to become a foster carer?

Everyone’s journey is different. Fostering is a decision to make a real difference to the lives of children in your community.

what can I expect?

From our first talk to your official green light, the process of becoming a foster carer can take up to 6 months. Every step of the way, we’ll be with you.

Your fostering assessment will start straightaway, running parallel to online training and learning. At the end of the learning you will gain a level 2 qualification in Therapeutic Fostering which will support you to parent in a therapeutic manner.

We’ll get to know you and your family. Find out what you’re passionate about, and most importantly, who you are. It’s not just your home and your community that matter to us. We care about you as an individual. We work to match you with foster children who’ll fit into your family and your way of life. To make the best matches – and build the best possible futures – we need to know everything that we can.
