There are many fostering agencies you can choose from and all have their own ways of working. When you have decided that you would like to foster, making sure you find the most suitable agency for you is very important. To help you in your search, we can put you in touch with fostering agencies in your region, meaning you only need to complete the one form; we then use our experience to match you to the best agency in your area. Your details will be passed over and you will be contacted by a local person who will discuss your enquiry in more detail.
Agencies offer you great support as a foster carer, but it can be very difficult working out which one is best for you and completing many forms. Let us do this for you.
At this point you could be talking to quite a few agencies. We recommend that you chose one or two you are comfortable with and meet with them. A social worker will then look to visit you at home and go through things in much more detail. The full process will take approximately 6 months; click here to see the process in more detail.
