Thinking About Becoming a Foster Carer?

Welcome to Community Foster Care

Community Foster Care is a charity which provides foster families for local children in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Swindon, Cumbria and Lancashire. Find out more about us, our communities and what it's like to be a foster carer by downloading our Fostering Information Pack.

Are you thinking about fostering?

We are looking for people who are considering fostering. There are thousands of children in our communities that are in need of foster carers who can offer stability, warmth and security, and the number is rising. 

Becoming a foster carer is easier than you think. Foster carers come from all walks of life and can be male or female, single, married or divorced. You must be over 21 and have a spare room.

We offer lots of training and support to get foster carers started.

Once you’ve been approved as a foster carer with us, we’ll continue to be with you every step of the way, providing the best supervision, support and resources possible, enabling you to meet the children’s needs. 

We’d love to hear from you if you are thinking of fostering and would like to offer a child a safe, loving and welcoming home.

People tend to contemplate fostering for a long time, before coming forward.  Please be assured that we are very happy to answer questions about fostering to support your consideration. 

Please get in touch using the contact form on this page, or contact staff at one of our offices. 

If you would like to find out more about fostering before getting touch, please take a look at our FAQs, read some of our foster carer profiles and find out why people choose Community Foster Care.
