Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I continue working?
It is possible to continue working in some circumstances as long as you have flexibility within your employment and are able to meet a child's day to day needs, for example, transporting to and from school. Most of our carers do not work as the role of a foster carer is a recognised profession.
Q: I'm gay - can I still foster?
We are not looking for a specific family set up or sexual orientation. Much more important is your commitment to fostering and your ability to offer a child or young person a safe and secure environment at a difficult time in their lives.
Our friendly Foster Carer Recruitment Team will be delighted to help with any queries you might have about fostering with us. You can call them on 0844 560 9690 at any time from 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday. They will be happy to send you an information pack. Your call will be charged at the local rate.
