What is fostering really like?

Initial Home Visit

If you decide that you would like to foster, or would like more information, we will arrange to meet you at your home.

We will also ask you questions about your background, skills and experience and your reasons for wanting to become a foster carer.


Preparation

Following our visit, we'll decide together whether you are in a position to go ahead with a fostering application.  If you are, we will invite you to preparation training.  These sessions will give you a chance to learn more about fostering with other people who, like you, are hoping to become foster carers.  It should provide enough information to enable you to decide whether to proceed with an application to foster.
