I’ll be the main foster carer – do you carry out checks on my partner?

Posted on: 16 July 2013

Yes – we carry out thorough checks on all adult members of your household over the age of 16 including birth children and lodgers etc. All couples living together are partners in the fostering process, so you’ll both need to have the necessary checks and training as part of your assessment.
