Anyone can apply to become a foster carer and we welcome applications from all sectors of the community. It is desirable that you must be able to show that you have experience of caring for and or working with young people and must be able to show that you have a strong network of support.
To be accepted for an assessment
to become a foster carer for the Caldecott Fostering Services you must:
* Please note that your “spare” bedroom(s) need to be separate from your own
** Please note that these criteria’s are mandatory – we cannot consider applicants who don’t meet them
Many of the children and young people we work with have come from difficult background and so can be challenging or have multiple needs. Caldecott Fostering Services will give you 24 hour support, 7 days a week, but you need to be prepared to take the difficult times with the good.
Many of our young people have told us that their placement with a Caldecott foster carer has changed their life – it is impossible to underestimate the value of a stable, loving home to young people who may have moved home many times
in their young lives.
