Can I be a foster carer if I smoke?
Yes, but you will be limited in the age range of children you can care for. It’s vitally important that fostered children and young people have positive role models in their life’s, so we may ask that if you must smoke you do so outdoors and not in your home or your car.
Why Compass Fostering?
With us, you’ll be joining a team of professionals. We give carers the opportunity to build a career in fostering through training, mentoring, involvement in local support groups, recruiting other carers and developing a host of skills that enhance your expertise as a foster carer.
Our foster carers receive extensive support, generous allowances and everything they need to help children and young people find emotional stability and security. We know that while fostering is often highly rewarding, it can also be challenging at times: this is why we constantly look at new and innovative ways of supporting our carer families to minimise any challenges and support the placement.
