Can I foster if I have children living at home?

Yes! You can foster if you have children living at home. As a parent you will have gained great experience in looking after children. We will have to take into consideration the needs of your own children and those of the looked after child before we can make a fostering placement.

We will look at the potential impact on the children and help you to prepare your family for the new experience of a child coming to share your lives. You cannot foster a child if your own child is under two years old
