Why Should I Care for a Child?

You may have considered fostering for a while but you're not sure where to begin. You might feel you have the commitment, time and love to give to a child, but you're not sure if you're right for the role.

Whatever your age, ethnicity or personal circumstances, fostering could be for you. You don't have to own your home or be employed. The most important qualities we look for are resilience, patience and the ability to share your life and home with children who need stability and security.

Most children in need of care have faced adversity in their lives. As a result, foster care is a challenging and complex role, but ultimately, a rewarding and life-changing journey, too.
