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.
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.
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.
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.

I’m new to fostering

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.
