Welcome to The Fostering Foundation

If you're looking at our website because you're thinking of becoming a foster carer, I'd like to thank you for visiting The Fostering Foundation.

Our website is designed to help you find out about fostering and becoming a foster carer. We also want to explain how The Fostering Foundation can help and support you - from applying to become a foster carer through to the reality of looking after a foster child in your home.

Please take a few minutes to look through our website. I hope that it will help you appreciate how The Fostering Foundation has been set up to meet your needs and also give you more information about becoming a foster carer.

If you work for a Local Authority, please find out how to make a referral or read more about us.

Thank you again,

Geoffrey Lewis
The Fostering Foundation
