LGBTQ+ Foster Carers

Fostering Dimensions believe that your personal qualities and passion for changing children’s lives are what make you a great foster carer, not your gender, sexual orientation or relationship status and this will not stop your endeavours in becoming LGBT, single or married foster carers. If you are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual and are a part of the LGBT Community or single or married, then fostering may be for you. If becoming a foster carer is something that you’re interested in, we want to hear from you.

LGBT foster carers face the same challenges as other foster carers and if you are considering fostering, you may be wondering if this is something you can do. Well, the answer is yes, of course, you can. The LGBT community have been fostering for many years and, they are changing children’s lives every single day. You could change a child’s life today and being a part of the LGBT community will not stop that.

Relationship Status

A common question we are asked is whether you can foster if you’re single? A foster carer is not determined by your relationship status or sexual orientation but on your personal attributes and dedication to opening up your heart and your home.

Just as there is diversity in foster children and children in general, foster carers and parents themselves should bring diversity from a variety of backgrounds, life experiences and skills. These qualities help meet the needs of children and young adults who require foster care. Whether you come from a single household or you’re married or whatever your relationship status is, we believe that it is your personal qualities that make you a great candidate for fostering.

The real question is if you can provide a stable and supportive home and environment for foster children. If so, we’ll equip you with the training and support you need to really make a difference.

To begin your journey into fostering in Nottingham you must meet the following criteria:

Fostering is something I’d thought about doing for a long time but always thought I couldn’t do. Speaking to Fostering Dimensions made me realise I could and I have not looked back since.
