I am a smoker will this prevent me from being considered?

Posted on: 16 July 2013

In view of the significant risks of smoking and passive smoking, applicants who currently smoke will be limiting their suitability. We are unable to place a child under 5 within a home where smoking occurs. Any new applicants who currently smoke are encouraged to quit smoking in line with healthy life styles.  You can get support to quit smoking from the local Stop Smoking Service.
