Fostering. One of the most rewarding things you can do

Start your fostering journey

Hampshire County Council is looking for people who live in the county or surrounding areas. We are particularly looking for homes for older children, teenagers, siblings and children with disabilities or special needs.

Our aim

We aim to find more foster carers in Hampshire who can provide our children and young people a safe place to call home. You don’t need any formal qualifications to become a foster carer, just a spare room and the desire to make a difference.

If you’ve got love in your body to help children, then you can foster. They need support, they need structure and they need somewhere they can call home.
