Many people don’t apply as they assume they will not be suitable but people are often surprised by who can foster. People of all different ages, cultures, ethnicities, religions, sexualities, and marital status’ can foster.
We are always looking for full time foster carers who need to be available full time, however if you have a full time job this doesn’t mean you can’t be an Oak Fostering carer. We also recruit respite carers who can offer breaks to our main foster carers a couple of nights a month and provide them with some babysitting. The application and recruitment process is exactly the same regardless of which type of fostering you are applying to do.
The key things we require are you:
Because of the nature of the children we care for it is also very helpful if you have existing experience of working with children in any setting, particularly those which have brought you into contact with children who have experienced trauma and those who display challenging behaviour.
If you are unsure if you will be suitable for the role – just ask us by requesting a call back and we can talk you through the whole process.
