Once you application to become a foster care is accepted you will start an assessement process, know as a Form F assessment. This assessment will help us to identify whether you and your partner, if you're making a joint application, are suitable to be approved as a foster carer and to agree the types of fostering you will be approved for.
Throughout the assessment you will work alongside us to help us record, in the Form F, why you would be a good foster carer and how your current family and the environment you live in will help to improve the lives of children and young people.
There will be a number of planned meetings in your home or via an online video chat that will provide the opportunity to collect and share information. It will give you the opportunity to find out more about being a foster carer and the role you will play in the futures for children and young people.
If you want to find out more about starting the assessment to become a foster carer, contact us today.
You can chat with us online and you can get the answers to your questions immediately.
