LGBTQIA+

Yes, we welcome you

If you are lesbian, gay, bi or transgender, you may be wondering if fostering is something you can do. Well, the answer to this question is yes, you can.

Subject to all the usual checks and processes, there is absolutely no reason why someone from the LGBTQIA+ community cannot foster. Lesbian and Gay people have been fostering children for many years and there are many examples of children growing up happily with LGBTQIA+ foster carers.
