Fostering asks for a lot of your time, and we expect our foster parents to be there for children - night and day, including taking them to appointments and looking after them at home when they’re too ill for school.
Most of the training and events we arrange for foster parents also take place during the working week, so while you’ll definitely have time to yourself, it probably won’t be enough to also take on a challenging job. Besides, the payments and allowances we make to foster parents are designed, in part, to remove the pressure of having to work. This can be a real benefit for many people, including single parents.
We’ll discuss all this in detail during your application process, so please get in touch if you’d like to take things further.
Whether you’re ready to start your journey or just want to chat to an expert, we're here to talk.
