Fostering, Room, Children, Care
When it comes to fostering, committed, enthusiastic people is what we're looking for. People from all walks of life can apply for fostering in Wakefield, regardless of:
Single or in a relationship
Employed or unemployed
Homeowner or in rented accommodation.
The only requirements are that you're over 21, have a spare room in your home and, of course, room in your life to accommodate a child or young person.
Health and make sure your home is safe for a child to live in. Smoke free homes are strongly preferred, as each child's health is extremely important and no child under 5 years or with respiratory problems will be placed with a smoker.
All foster carers and anyone else in the household over 18 years of age will also be subject to a Criminal Records Bureau check, as certain offences would prevent you from fostering.
