Other factors to consider?

Your home – Is it safe for a child or young person?
Your experience with children and young people – through family, work, or volunteering. Has it been positive or negative?
Your friends and family – Are there people who can support you to foster?
Your health – Are you fit and able to foster now and for the foreseeable future?
Your financial security – Would fostering be your primary source of income?
Your past – Do you have any previous convictions?
