Fostering with a disability Blog.
There is nothing prohibiting disabled people from becoming foster carers. Indeed, they often are more empathetic to the tribulations of foster children. Disabled people often struggle to find suitable, conventional forms of work. For them, fostering could be the perfect form of employment.
You can work from home and manage your own workload. It can also be very empowering for disabled people to overcome their disability and make a positive contribution to another’s life.
However, it can also be challenging. Depending on your disability, you may be restricted in terms of your movement. If you also require care yourself, it is perhaps not responsible to take on the care of another. It is important to assess your own suitability for the role before applying.
