The process of becoming an everyday heroes can be broken down into the following simple steps…
1. You get in touch
When you get in touch with us we'll chat about your interest in becoming a foster carer, complete a short enquiry form, and answer any questions you have. You can get in touch with us here.
2. Home visit
One of our fostering advisors will visit you in your home to explain what fostering involves and to find out more about you and your circumstances. They'll then help you complete an application pack so your enquiry can be taken to the next stage.
3. References & Training
In order to get to know more about you and your family we request references from your friends, family and employers. We also request criminal record checks, Local Authority checks and ask you to have a medical assessment. You'll be invited to our Skills to Foster training which help you to prepare practically for being a foster carer.
