Can I foster if I'm not married?

We welcome applications from people who are single, living together, married, divorced or separated. Whether you are single or a couple it's really useful to have a good support network.


If you’ve only been in a relationship for a short time and are considering fostering as a couple, we’d suggest that you are in a stable situation (living together) for at least 12-18 months before you start the fostering process.


Fostering will have an impact on your home life, so it's important to be settled in your relationship before starting the assessment process.
