Can I foster if I have a criminal record?

It is possible to foster if you have a criminal record however certain types of offences will prevent you from being a carer e.g. offences against children, sexual offences and certain offences involving violence. Where other offences are concerned, including some violent offences, we will carry out an assessment of the risk that you might pose to children and make a decision on whether or not we could approve you to be a carer.
