Could you foster?

On any one day there are more than 62,000 children living with foster families across the UK. The Fostering Network estimates that a further 8,600 foster carers are needed this year alone to provide the supportive, stable and caring home for these vulnerable children.

If you’re new to fostering, find out more of what fostering is and what foster carers do to see whether fostering is for you. Fostering is not easy, you need to have the energy, patience and dedication to care. But it gives you the opportunity to make a huge difference to children’s lives.

If you’re ready to make an enquiry, you can use our handy tool to find a fostering service in your area.

As a foster child myself I would not be where I am today without the people that were kind enough to help and care for me when others were unable. Please please consider fostering a child.
