Sons and Daughters Month
Sons and Daughters Month highlights the amazing birth children of foster carers, who also welcome fostered children and young people into their home. This October, we talked to 13-year-old Dan who told us what it's like to be part of a fostering family and what advice he would give to people thinking of fostering.

Support and payments
We will be with you every step of the way on your journey to becoming a foster carer and provide support, training and guidance when you are fostering.
We know that people don’t foster for the money, but also recognise that you need to cover the costs of caring for a foster child.
Who can foster?
Foster carers come from all backgrounds. What's important is your interest in caring for a child.
It's required that you have some experience of caring or working with children or young people, and have a spare room.
