LGBTQ+ Foster Carers

At the Together Trust, we welcome foster carers from all backgrounds

For over 20 years we have been supporting and recruiting LGBTQ+ couples and individuals to become foster carers and have a growing number of families who are providing excellent care to children of all ages.

We are proud members of New Family Social and are commited to creating safe homes for foster children with couples and individuals. Becoming a successful foster parent is all about having the right personal qualities such as a great sense of humour, resilience and patience; not your sexual ordination or identity.

A lot of gay couples and people have experienced hardship in life and built resilience, which I think is a great thing to pass on to the children we are caring for. We have experiences that can help young people if they have questions or need advice. It’s a great feeling to be helping someone and setting them up for their life ahead.

Each and every fostering household is different, just like every child in need of foster care is different.

We’re proud to be an inclusive fostering agency, as we believe this enables us to provide the very best supportive and loving homes for children.

We know it can sometimes be useful to talk to experienced foster parents who’ve been through the same thing.  That’s why when you apply to foster with us, if you wish, we can put you in touch with other fostering families from your local area who can share their experience with you.
