Who can foster in Cambridgeshire?

Almost anyone over 21 who has a spare room in their home can apply to be a foster carer. As a foster carer you need to have the time, skills and experience to meet the needs of vulnerable children and young people who are separated from their families. Cambridgeshire’s foster carers represent a range of ages and cultural, racial and religious backgrounds. We welcome applications from people who are single, married, in a civil partnership or living with a partner.

Our priority groups

We are particularly keen to hear from people who are able to care for children within at least one of our priority groups.
