Your fostering journey
There are different types of foster care and our carers provide one or a mixture of these depending on what works best for them and their family.
There are lots of myths around who can foster, however there are only a few things we insist on. Ultimately, foster carers need to be able to provide a safe, warm, caring stable home for a child.
We hold a number of virtual and face to face information sessions sessions to give people the chance to have an informal chat with a fostering advisor and are a great opportunity to find out if fostering might be right for you.
There’s no one better to tell you about fostering than the people who are currently caring for children in Dudley.
