Could you foster?

Fostering is open to a lot more people than you think. You may be single, married, in a civil partnership or in a long term relationship. You are eligible to foster if you:

  • have a spare bedroom
  • are aged over 21
  • live in or nearby Central Bedfordshire
  • rent your property or own your own home (we just ask that you have a secure tenancy for at least two years)
  • have indefinite leave to remain or full residency within the UK

The most important thing is that foster carers have the stamina, health and physical fitness to meet the individual needs of children they will be looking after.
