At Unity Foster Care, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive, welcoming agency focused on providing high quality care to children in need. As an LGBTQ+ friendly fostering agency, we want to encourage everyone interested in becoming a carer to apply!
What is foster care?
Every year, thousands of children are placed into care with the hope of finding a new, loving home to grow in. Foster care is designed to provide vital support to a child who can no longer live with their birth parents, and help keep a level of stability in their lives.
As a foster carer, you'll play an integral role in the positive personal development of the foster child, and help them find security in their new home. From helping them with their homework to taking them on fun days out, you’ll treat your foster child in the same way you would treat your own children: with care, love and respect!
Who can foster?
Anyone over the age of 25 with a spare bedroom and a UK citizenship has the potential to become a foster parent! If you're a kind, caring person with time to look after a child in need, we want to hear from you!
As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, we want to reassure you that Unity Foster Care is a friendly, welcoming agency and are proud to already represent amazing LGBTQ+ foster carers!
