Just take a minute to think about yourself ...

Think about your life experience, how you were bought up, the good times and the not so good and how you fixed problems along the way. Remember your successes, how you coped with failures and how people helped you to become the person you are today.

But I’ve no experience...

Ok, you might or might not have any experience of fostering, but you have a lot of the resources and skills it takes to work with people, and if you are interested in working with children, to apply to be a foster carer.

Maybe my life experience means I could foster...

Now you know you are eligible, don’t let those doubtful feelings get in the way because when you do what comes naturally, being a foster carer will give you more happiness, self-satisfaction and independence.

What about my age...

Oh, and children who need keeping safe from harm don’t mind how old you are, and neither do agencies, you just need to be fit and well.

Who are we?
We are a free support service if you are interested in becoming a foster carer, or if you’re an existing foster carer.

I’m new to fostering
The information on our web site will help you to decide if foster caring is for you and if it is, we can help you to find the most suitable agencies with vacancies on our UK Database.

I want to change my agency
A qualified social worker will find an agency that suits you better, then negotiate better terms, on your behalf.

Choosing an agency

It’s not uncommon for carers to give up, or transfer between agencies every year…

What we do to help you to get the best possible start...


  • Match you with suitable agencies

    Check your details carefully, so we can decide which agencies would suit you best

  • Identify local agencies who are recruiting

    Identify those agencies on our database, that are recruiting in your area

  • Forward your details

    On the same day we receive your enquiry, forward your details to those agencies

  • Request contact

    Request that the agencies contact you within three working days, using the method you identified in your enquiry form

I want to foster
Do you want to really make a difference and help children to be safe from more harm? Carers come from all backgrounds and with a range of experiences; child minders, youth workers, teachers, nurses, social workers and adults with parenting experience.

A new career
As a foster carer, you will be approved by an agency to look after children as a self employed carer who works from home. Carers are seen as professionals in the care system and fostering is considered as a job which provides a reasonable income.

Types of placements
As a foster carer you can choose from the different types of placements you look after;  babies, children, teenagers, mother and babies,  asylum seeking children or a mix of different types. You can be a respite, short term or long term long carer…
