Carers are everyday people and we need all kinds of carers, from emergency carers who can take care of children at short notice to those who can provide a home for children until they turn 18.

Foster carers are generally aged between 25 and 70 and can be:

  • individuals (male or female)
  • couples (including same sex couples)
  • people with their own children
  • people who do not have children.
