Becoming a Foster Carer

You’ll be supported throughout your application to become a foster carer (also known as a foster parent) with National Fostering Group. As the UK’s largest and most experienced agency, we’re with you every step of the way.

As young adults, taking the leap to become fostering carers seemed scary. Our local National Fostering Group agency provided encouragement, education and understand the challenges that are involved with being a foster carers. It's a rewarding experience.

Ongoing support when you foster a child

We know how potential foster carers value the support we give them while they are applying to foster a child. We’re also committed to continuing to support you once you’ve been accepted.

National Fostering Group sees this as an ongoing relationship where we can work together to provide the best care and outcomes. It’s a challenging role to foster a child and you’ll find it reassuring to know there’s a team behind you.

We often talk about National Fostering Group being a family, and we mean it. Because our agencies are based locally, you’ll really benefit from the personal contact you have with the people who can support you.

The level of support we give our foster carers is one of the main reasons they continue to foster children with us year after year. We will advise you, fight your corner, celebrate your achievements and be there for you as you become an advocate for your foster children.

I have and always would recommend the National Fostering Group. They have been amazing for us and we’ve never thought about moving away from them.
