Am I too old to foster a child?

Life experience is a great asset for anyone looking to become a Foster Parent. As long as you are over the age of 25 years old, age should not prevent you from making an enquiry into fostering. However, anyone looking to fostering, irrespective of age, will need to prove that they are in a good standard of physical and mental health.

 

Our Foster Parents come from all walks of life and are all ages. It is important that you have the experience and stability in your life to be able to support a child or young person.
