Call our recruitment team on 0800 917 0925 or leave your details and we'll get back to you.

Your details

 

When you contact us we'll send you an information pack. We'll then arrange to visit you at home.

Initial visit

A member of our recruitment team will arrange to come and visit you at home so that you can find out more about the process in an informal way.

Checks

We carry out checks to protect the children we care for. These include Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and Local Authority checks, as well as medical, personal and employment references.

You can't become a foster carer if you've committed any offences against children or other serious offences. We'll explain more about this during the initial enquiry and home visit.

Skills to Foster training

After your visit, if everyone is in agreement to proceed, you'll be invited to a Skills to Foster training course. This usually takes place during the day on Saturdays and weekday evenings over a two week period.

After this training course, you'll be allocated a social worker who'll meet with you regularly to complete your assessment.
