Welcome to The Fostering Foundation

We provide placements for children and young people who are unable to live with their families and require a household that will support them, provide advice, nurture, empowerment and show resilience to enable children to make decisions and form positive relationships.

Anyone can apply to become a foster carer, and all our regions are currently looking to recruit new carers to deal with the increasing number of children placed in foster care. Please explore our website, we have useful articles on becoming a foster carer, and answers to many of your questions are on our regional pages.
