Children and young people come from all walks of life and that’s why we need Foster Carers who reflect the diversity of our modern society. You could be straight or gay, married or living together, with or without children, single or divorced or you could be a single parent.
Similarly, we encourage fostering applications from people of different ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds to reflect the diversity of young people in care. Some of our Foster Carers work while others are at home. Some have children at home and others have either not had their own children, or have children who have grown up and left the family home.
