 LGBTQ+ Fostering

The road ahead is as
long as you make it.

If you identify as LGBTQ+ and are concerned that it may affect your application to foster, please think again!

Affinity Fostering believe you can change the world of a child no matter your sexuality or gender identity.

As a result, we will seriously consider applications to foster from anyone who applies.

The Fostering Network estimates that there are approximately 7,000 LGBTQ+ fostering families changing lives across the UK.

The fostering process can often seem long, complex and frustrating - but rest-assured this is an experience shared by all prospective foster carers.

An Outstanding agency, Affinity Fostering will be there to hold your hand and guide you through the fostering application process and provide specialist advice to LGBTQ+ carers.

Ongoing support will also be provided once a young person has been placed into your care. So please feel confident in contacting us whatever your background.

We'd love to listen to any worries you may have and answer your questions. As long as you can see the potential in every child, and help them reach it, you could be doing something amazing in the future.

Can you provide a child with a loving, stable LGBTQ+ home?

If just 1% of the LGBTQ+ population were to adopt or foster,
there wouldn't be a waiting list for children to find homes.
