How Long Does It Take To Become A Foster Carer?
From start to finish, it usually takes around three to four months for you to be all set up and approved. This includes background checks, assessments and training courses. We’ll always do our best to process your application as swiftly as possible, but please be aware that it can sometimes take up to six months before you’re assigned your first placement.
It may sound like a big commitment, but most people who become foster carers with us call it a “very satisfying” experience. After all, you’ll be making a big difference to the life of a child in need.
