Many people mistakenly think that there are aspects of their lifestyle that will prevent them from fostering. You can foster a child if you are:

- Single, in a civil partnership, married or unmarried
- A homeowner or living in rented accommodation
- A parent or parents already
- From any ethnic or religious background
- Working, unemployed or retired
- Any age (over 21)
Having a disability or a medical condition doesn’t exclude you from adopting or fostering either, as long as you are able to cope with parenting, you can become a foster parent. You can find out more about who can become a Foster Carer by clicking here.
