Foster carers come from all walks of life. Whatever your background, it's the qualities you bring to fostering that count. It doesn't matter whether you are man or woman who is single, married, divorced, in a civil partnership or cohabiting. We welcome applications from people who do not have children as well as those that do, regardless of their relationship status, gender or sexual orientation. All that we ask is that you have been a 'steady' situation for at least 18 months.
