Our Loving Home: LGBTQ+ Foster Carers

In foster care, what matters most is providing a safe and caring home for children who need it. Your sexual orientation doesn’t change your ability to offer love, support, and stability. Whether you’re LGBTQ+ or not, what counts is creating a positive environment where kids can grow and thrive. What matters most is the love and care you provide, regardless of who you are.

We caught up with Claire and Heather, a same sex couple who had their doubts before exploring the fostering route due to their sexuality but have been welcomed into the team and have made a huge difference to children’s lives.

If reading Claire and Heather’s story has encouraged you to think about becoming a foster carer, then we’d love to hear from you.
