Could you foster?
There are many attributes needed to become a foster carer: resilience, energy and patience are just a few. The most important quality that you can bring is your willingness to accept a child for who they are.
"Becoming a foster carer is life changing. It's the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life"
We have a few practical requirements as well:
- you are at least 21 years old
- you have a spare room
- you are in reasonable health and medically fit
- you must be able to drive and have access to a car
- you are a non-smoker (this includes e-cigarettes/vaping) if caring for a child under 12 years old
