Being assessed to become a foster carer can be quite intense, so you need to know that you are ready to start the process.
To consider fostering you need to:
- Be over the age of 21
- Be a resident in the United Kingdom
- Have a spare room
- Have been a non-smoker for at least 6 months (this includes e-cigarettes) if you wish to foster children under 5
- Have the time and energy to commit to the fostering process
- Be ready to be honest and open about your life experiences!
