Gateshead Council

There's no such thing as a typical foster carer. Our carers come from all walks of life, just like the children who need to be cared for. We're looking for people who are patient, flexible, understanding, determined and keen to learn. Your individual qualities and what you can offer to a child or young person are what matter to us. There are some criteria you need to meet before you can be consider becoming a foster carer. To be a foster carer you must be - over 21 years of age and fit and active enough to care for a child. There is no upper age limit though you need to be able to meet the needs of the child; - have a separate bedroom suitable for a child or young person (unless you are fostering a baby or child up to two years of age in which case the child can sleep in a cot in your bedroom); - be a full-time UK resident or have indefinite leave to remain; - have the time and commitment to give to a child or young person.
