I'm interested in becoming a foster parent
  • Can I Foster a Child If I Am Not A Parent Already?

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
