Can I foster if I'm not a parent?
Although having your own children is a great way to gain experience and knowledge, you don't have to be a parent to foster a child.
At By the Bridge we'll provide you with dynamic, interesting training and lots of support so you'll feel secure in your work.
As a Foster Parent we need you to:
- Be able to build good relationships with children and others around you
- Can see the potential in every child you foster
- Are reliable through a child's good times and tough times
- Can offer a secure, loving and caring home for a foster child
