Can I Foster in Manchester?

The application process to become a foster carer is very in-depth.

However, these are the basic requirements to apply to foster in Manchester and across the UK:

You do not need any qualifications or experience.  Full training will be provided free of charge and you will receive 24/7 support.

You can become a foster carer regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity or faith.  What is most important is what you can offer a young person.

From when you submit your application, it usually takes around 3-months to complete checks and obtain your registration.
