In a nutshell… all kinds of people can foster. Reach Out Care foster carers come from all walks of life.
Marital status, sexuality, age or whether or not you are a home owner do not impact on becoming a successful foster carer – this is about your ability to nurture and care for a child and to work as part of a professional team.
You must be over 21 years old, have a spare bedroom and have the time and availability to dedicate yourself to fostering.
Experience of caring for or working with children is an advantage though not essential.
