Let’s have a chat!

Step 2

Submit your application! Then our team will arrange a meeting to help you decide if fostering is right for you.

Step 3

If you decide that fostering is right for you, we’ll talk to you about our checks.

Step 4

We’ll then ask you to attend our three-day course: Preparing to Care Group.

Step 5

An assessment panel meeting will consider your application for approval.

Step 6

If you’re approved, our team will look to match your family with a child who needs a foster home.

Step 7

We’ll work with you to create a professional development plan, and provide ongoing training and support.
