Do you have space in your Home and Heart to foster a child?

Foster Carers come from all walks of life and backgrounds, just like the children and young people we care for. The main requirement is a genuine interest in the welfare of children and the ability to provide a safe, stable, and nurturing environment in which they can thrive and prosper.

There are many myths as to who can and who cannot foster, and the list below is designed to provide accurate advice to anyone considering a career in foster care. To become a Foster Carer with Ethelbert Fostering Services, you must be at least 21 years of age.

There is no upper age limit if you are fit and healthy. You will need to have a minimum of one spare bedroom and either own your home or have a stable tenancy agreement. Whether you are single, married, in a civil partnership or cohabiting, you can apply to become a Foster Carer.

You can apply to become a Foster Carer irrespective of your sexuality or gender alignment. Applications from across the LGBTQ+ community are welcomed.

We need Foster Carers from all walks of life as children often to thrive best in families that can reflect their own culture, language, and religion.

Health impairment or disability need not be a barrier to fostering, if you can provide the lifestyle necessary for an active child or young person.

Why not pop by for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake to discuss the opportunities available within our fostering service.
