Who can foster?

KACa_097

Patience, energy and commitment – that’s what it takes to become a foster carer.

Because when it comes to caring for a foster child, it’s your personal qualities that count.

At Key Assets, we celebrate diversity and welcome people from all backgrounds. As long as you’re able to provide stability to a child or young person in need, then you could make a brilliant foster carer.

What do I need to become a foster carer?

Firstly, you don’t need qualifications or experience as a parent. In fact, many people choose fostering after raising a family or they are looking for change in their life. And while parenting experience can come in handy, it’s not essential. What’s more important is that you’re passionate about changing a child’s life and eager to make a difference.

However, there are a few things you’ll need to foster with us:

  • You need to be over the age of 21
  • You need a spare bedroom
  • You’ll need to be available to foster full-time (however there may be some exceptions if you work part-time or from home with very flexible hours so please speak to us to find out more)
  • You need to have Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status.

We are actively seeking specialized foster families for intensive home-based care, medically-fragile children, sibling groups and respite care.
