Become a Foster Carer in Surrey

Why foster in Surrey with Ownlife?

We strongly believe that a happy family home will lead to your foster child growing up happy, and becoming a foster carer with us gives you the opportunity to give a child or teenager their Ownlife back.

We’re passionate about foster care and we strive to place as many young people with the right family to support their needs, but unfortunately the demand for foster carers is too high to place every child in care. However with your support, you can improve a young person’s life and make a positive impact to the foster care community.

    How to Become a Foster Carer in Surrey

    Becoming a foster carer in Surrey is simple:

    1.    Complete our enquiry form.

    2.    We’ll contact you within 24 hours. In this phone call, we’ll discuss fostering as a career opportunity for you and answer any questions you have. We’ll also arrange an initial meeting in our office and organise a time for a home visit. This is an opportunity to talk in depth about becoming a foster carer and what it entails.

    3.    After the home visit, we’ll assign a social worker to you who will start the formal process of becoming a foster carer. This involves 6-8 visits to your home and a 3-day training session. OwnLife Fostering aims to have the whole process completed in roughly 8 weeks.

    4.    The final stage in becoming a foster carer is for you and your assigned social worker to attend a fostering panel for consideration of approval. After this, you are ready to start your new career in foster care.

    The most important thing is that you have what it takes to inspire children and young people to own and take control of their own lives, and the determination to never give up.
