HMG Foster Carers
Foster carers are a diverse group of people from a wide range of backgrounds, but the starting point for almost all of them is the realisation that they could make a difference to a child’s life.
Being able to foster isn’t about whether you’re single, married, cohabiting, divorced, gay, lesbian or heterosexual. It isn’t about whether or not you already have children, or what your religious beliefs and practices are. Carers and their families do not fit into one mould but they do have some similarities. They all want to make a difference to a child who needs help.
Many people presume that they would not be eligible to be a foster carer for a variety of reasons. However, people from a diverse range of backgrounds can become foster carers. As long as you have a spare room for a foster child in your home, you’re eligible to apply to become a foster carer. It doesn’t matter if you own your own home or not, if you rent you are just as welcome.
