The Fostering Process

How do I become a foster carer?

Becoming a foster carer can take between 4 and 6 months. It is a decision not to be taken lightly and you may want to take some time to think about it. We also have a duty to make sure that you are right for the looked after children. See below for the different stages of the application process.

The process provides carers well (to quote our 2019 Ofsted report) 'The agency ensures that foster carers are provided with the skills and knowledge they need. This includes a comprehensive training programme which is continually updated to support their development. Carers value the training and support provided to them.'
