Guide: The fostering process

Get in touch

The first thing you need to do is get in touch. Once you let us know that you may be interested in becoming a foster carer our team can start working with you to see if we’re right for each other. You can phone us on 0345 155 1077 or email foster@devon.gov.uk .

We will have an informal conversation about the role of the carer and assessment process which will help you and us decide if fostering is the right career for you. Your conversation will be in confidence and in no way commits you to apply to become a foster carer.
