Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency

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

We will provide you with as much information as is possible before any child is placed   in your care, so you can make an informed decision on whether or not you are likely to be able to meet the child’s needs. In some emergency situations we may only have limited information in the initial   stages, and as information is gathered it will be shared with you. 

Do I need a spare room?

Can I work and foster at the same time?

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?
