Often people rule themselves out of fostering due to assumptions about their age, household and also sexuality. The truth is that our foster carers come have a range of different backgrounds and it’s these life experiences which are valuable to help them to become a good foster carer.
LGBT carers often have a lot of life experience overcoming adversity, and this experience can be very valuable when looking after and a child or young person and helping them deal with difficulties in their own life. The ability to do this as a foster carer is extremely rewarding and an excellent alternative to parenting for a LGBT person or couple.
