Fostering FAQs: Do I need to have special training or qualifications to apply to be a foster carer?
No. You will receive training to help you and your family identify and build upon the skills you already have, and develop new skills needed to foster. Once approved you will be expected to undertake ongoing training such as First Aid, Skills to Foster and Child Protection.
The Fostering Foundation makes sure that we provide full support and training to all our foster carers, as we want to provide you with all the help you need to help your foster family.
