Once your Skills to Foster course has been completed and the ADM has approved your application, you’ll be ready for your first placement.
Matching you to your first foster child
The local agency team you have been working with will continue to support you throughout your fostering adventure.
By now, we’ve got to know each other quite well. Our team will use the information you’ve provided to match you with your first placement – and your foster carer journey will begin.
Ongoing foster carer support
Even after you have been approved to become a foster carer with us and are caring for your first child or young person, our expert local teams will continue to support you. They will visit regularly and remaining a constant source of professional guidance and advice as and when you need it. This includes the provision of a 24/7 emergency helpline.
