Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency

Do I need a spare room?

While it is ideal that a child will have their  own   bedroom, it is not always essential. A check will be completed on your home (which you can either own or rent) as part of the assessment process and this will consider the suitability of your accommodation.

Can I work and foster at the same time?

What will I know about the child before they are placed in my care?  

What if I can’t manage a child’s behaviour?

Can I choose the type of fostering I want to do, such as age group, gender, short stay or long term?  

What contact will I have with birth parents?

Can I choose the age group or gender of child I wish to foster?

Will training be provided?

What does the fostering allowance cover?

Are there any medical conditions which prevent me from fostering?

Would previous convictions prevent someone from fostering?
