The role of a foster carer


You don’t need any specific qualifications or experience to offer foster care, but you do need a stable loving home, a spare room and a commitment to promote children’s wellbeing, health and development.

In addition, the role involves:

  • working closely with other professionals
  • attending meetings
  • training for foster care (including basic childcare training and specialist techniques)

In return, we offer a generous allowance to cover the cost of care, an additional fee and support and training.
