Fostering refers to looking after a child who, for some reason, is separated from his/her family. To address the emotional needs and care for such children, foster parents are hired to look after them. You can apply to become a foster carer in an independent foster agency or your local council. It’s not important to have your own home, but you should have a spare bedroom.
You can be appointed as a Foster Carer regardless of your age, religion, region, caste, etc.

What is foster care? What do foster carers do?
Foster caring refers to the process of caring and looking after a child’s basic needs, who for some reason is separated from his/her family. To address such children’s emotional needs, foster carers are appointed who take their responsibility and look after all their basic needs that they generally expect from their parents.
Some children are not fortunate enough to stay with their families. They might have to bear their separation for some reason. And this is where the concept of Foster children comes into the picture. We provide such children with Foster Carers who take their responsibility and nurture their growth into proper individuals.
