As you might expect with such an important role, we’ll need to take a detailed look at your life.
The next step is to complete a foster carer application form. This will lead to you being assigned an assessing social worker, who will work with you on your assessment (known as a Form F).
You’ll need to complete a number of other forms before the assessment process can begin. We need to be thorough due to the nature of the foster care role you’ll be undertaking.
Don’t let the paperwork put you off – your local team are there to help if you need guidance.
