Step by step process to fostering a child
From your initial enquiry to becoming a foster carer - this process can take several months. Becoming a foster carer is an important decision to make, these steps are to ensure that we give you all of the support you need.
Before you let us know you are interested, feel free to ask about fostering for more information. We will answer any questions you have about becoming a foster carer.
If you're ready to take the first step to become a foster carer, let us know - express your interest in fostering a child online.
When we receive this, we'll contact you to discuss fostering in more detail. If you've not already been, we'll invite you to one of our Fostering information events.
At this stage, you are not committing to become a foster carer, you are simply asking questions to see whether fostering is for you.
