Can I foster if I'm single?

Absolutely, you can still foster a child if you're single.


Whether you are single or a couple, the key thing to remember is that you’re never on your own because as a By the Bridge Foster Parent, you are part of a strong fostering network.


Whether you’re a single parent or you’re simply a single person, you will receive financial support, 24/7 support and training to help you afford to look after children in your care and commit to fostering full-time.


As a Foster Parent it's really useful to have: a good support network of friends and/or family around you; experience and stability in your life and energy to keep up with a foster child or young person!
