Making the decision to foster can take time and can feel overwhelming. Once you have contacted us via our online enquiry form, we will get in touch to ask about your circumstances and how fostering might work for you. Once an application form is completed, and we have completed an initial visit, we set up completing the statutory safeguarding checks required to be a foster parent. These include taking references, arranging a GP medical for each applicant and completing criminal record checks on each applicant and other adult members of the household.
