Not sure whether Fostering’s
right for you?

It’s only natural to have a lot of questions if you’ve never fostered before. And when you don’t have all the answers it can put you off from taking that important first step. It can be nerve-wracking. We get it. That’s why we make it easy to find out whether fostering is the right role for you.


Are you wondering...

  • Do I have the right skills to foster?
  • Can fostering fit in with my job?
  • Do I need a spare room to foster a child?
  • What fostering checks are done?
  • What happens when fostering goes wrong?
  • How long does the fostering process take?
  • How much does fostering pay?


Booking a call with one of our experienced social workers is a great way to get the answers you need from the people who understand what’s involved.

Why foster carers choose to
foster with Diagrama

  • WE’RE PART OF A CHARITY – Diagrama Fostering is part of Diagrama Foundation, a charity supporting vulnerable children, adults and families. We don’t make a profit from foster care - we make sure all our surplus funds go straight back into providing the best service possible.
  • WE’RE HERE FOR YOU – We strive to provide outstanding expert support for our amazing foster carers. This includes specialist education advice.
  • WE VALUE YOU – Our foster carers play a crucial role at the heart of our expert team. To recognise our appreciation for their dedicated work we offer a generous benefits package free training, 24/7 support, additional payments and holiday cover.
  • WE BELIEVE IN YOU – We invest heavily in the continual personal development of our foster carers by providing our regular expert training and appraisal programme to help you develop new skills.

“We chose to foster so that we could make a difference. Inviting another child into your home and allowing them to find some stability, come alive and begin to really thrive is the best family decision we have made, and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.”
