Informal enquiry

 

  • Whether you just want to have a chat with us to answer some questions or want to make a formal enquiry to become a foster carer, fill in our enquiry form or speak to our team on 0300 123 6723
  • After you enquire to be a foster carer, we will phone you to arrange a home visit at a time that suits you
  • At this visit we'll talk about your circumstances and find out more about you. We'll check to see if your home is suitable for fostering and you can ask any questions
  • Within two weeks, we’ll tell you if you've got through to the next stage

A social worker experienced in foster care will support you and offer you advice as you go through the process.
