Become a Foster Carer

My garden has a pond / swimming pool / trampoline is this okay?

The agency will review each case individually and the assessment will depend on the age of the children to be fostered but in all cases, ponds will need to be covered or properly protected from children falling in. In the case of swimming pools, these will be assessed individually and in the case of a fixed trampoline, this will need to have age appropriate protection surrounding it to prevent injury.
