Welcome!

Thank you for finding out more about becoming a foster carer or an adoptive parent. We very much welcome your enquiry, because we are always looking for foster carers and adoptive families; especially for 5-15 year olds, groups of brothers and sisters, and children/young people with additional needs.

 We hope these pages will answer your questions about fostering/adoption and help you decide whether you wish to take your interest further.

Our aim is to provide information which should:

  • Tell you why we need families to look after children and young people and help you to understand that our job is about finding families for children - not children for families
  • Give you some idea about the roles and responsibilities of both foster carers and adoptive parents
  • Explain the process of becoming foster carers and adoptive parents
  • Help you decide whether you and your family could do this job and whether this is the right time for you to apply.
