Become a Foster Carer with The CFT

Could you make a difference to a vulnerable child’s life? Becoming a foster carer with The Children’s Family Trust means that you can change the future of a child in care.

We need more Foster Parents across the UK to help us continue to provide secure, safe and loving homes to children in the care system. 


You don’t need to have any previous fostering experience to become a foster parent with us – you just need to be at least 21 years old, be reasonably fit and healthy and have a spare bedroom available for a foster child or children. 

When you join the children’s family trust as one of our fantastic foster carers, you’ll receive full training and support every step of the way, a generous weekly fostering allowance and a dedicated social worker who will help you with advice and answers. 

You can read more about the fostering process here, or read about the different types of Foster Placements here.
