Become a Foster Carer

I have a criminal record, does that mean I can’t foster?

Whilst there are a number of criminal offences which would exclude people from becoming foster carers, equally, there are a number which won’t.

Everyone’s background and experience is different so we assess each applicant on their own merits. The most important thing is that you are completely honest and open with us at every stage of your assessment.

If you are concerned about this in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact us for confidential advice. We are not here to judge you, we are here to help you achieve your wish to foster children and young people, so please, get in touch.
