Initial visit

We'll contact you to arrange a first meeting, usually at your home, where one of our Recruitment Team will be happy to answer any questions you have about becoming a foster carer. It's a chance to discover if foster caring really is right for you and your family.

We'll find out more about you at this meeting and check that there's nothing that would stop you from becoming a foster carer. It's a 'finding out' session for everyone, and there's no obligation at all to proceed if you decide it's not right for you.
