Eligibility criteria

We believe that the most vital criteria for becoming a foster carer is your ability and motivation to care for a child, who may have had a difficult start in life

We are developing foster carer communities in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.

We recruit foster carers from all walks of life and the one resounding attribute that they have in common, is their determination to support a child in reaching their true potential in life.

Every child is unique and will have individual needs, consequently, a unique and flexible approach is required when fostering. If you are driven by an unwavering desire to help others and have the courage to step outside of your comfort zone and care for a child in need, then you already have the core attributes required to become a successful foster carer. We will offer comprehensive training and workshops to develop your skills and knowledge and are on-hand 24/7 for support and to help you navigate any problems along the way.

Successful foster carers see the potential in every child and are prepared to treat them as if they are their own child, offering them a secure, loving and supportive home for as long as they need it.

At To The Moon And Back, we believe that the ability to enable positive change in a young person’s life, lies within each one of us. We are interested in how you can help and support a child to grow in a stable environment, regardless of whether you own or rent your home, your marital status, sexuality, religious beliefs or ethnicity.

We do however require that you satisfy the below criteria:
  • Over the age of 25 years old
  • Able to build good relationships with children and those around you
  • Able to offer a spare comfortable bedroom for a foster child
  • Access to a car or located near good transport facilities
  • Able to be there for the child or ensure somebody can be available, when they are not at school
I have been lucky enough to work with Angela and Alison previously in fostering, both of them are truly committed to providing an excellent service for children, foster carers and their staff.
