  • Can I Foster a Child If I Don't Have a Spare Room?

Can I foster a child if I don't have a spare room?

The vast majority of children requiring foster care are at an age where they would need their own space. This is especially important for foster children, who may have experienced traumatic situations and are having to adapt to life in a new house with different people and routines. In a time of turmoil and uncertainty, having their own space can be extremely comforting for foster children. 


That’s why we’ll only place a foster child or young person in a home where he or she will have their own bedroom.
