Anyone can apply to become a carer. Whether you’re single, married, divorced or in a same sex relationship, we would love to hear from you. Every child has different needs, so having a variety of carers on board means we can make the best possible match for both the child and carer. While every carer applicant is assessed on their individual merit, we are looking for carers who:

Can provide an environment that is physically and emotionally safe for the child,

with enough space and privacy for them to grow up strong

If in a relationship, must have been living together in a

domestic relationship and/or married for a minimum period of 2 years

Are over the age of 21

Demonstrate a good support network of family and friends

Demonstrate personal resilience through challenging times

Developing appropriate and sustainable household routines

Provide child focused nurture

Work well with others
