Fostering is caring for someone else's child in your own home, who for one reason or another cannot live with their own parents. Tusla foster carers positively transform the lives of vulnerable children everyday. Children are provided with a safe and loving home environment, where they can grow, flourish and reach their full potential.
Fostering is an exceptionally rewarding experience, offering carers a unique opportunity to shape the life of another. Not only are these endeavours incredibly rewarding for both parties; it is an invaluable act of kindness that benefits many generations.

There are a lot of misconceptions around foster care, making it easy to assume you don't meet the criteria. But in reality, the requirements are pretty simple, and you may well be the perfect candidate to offer a child a home. With that in mind, we're taking a closer look at what's required to foster with Tusla.
Anyone can enquire about becoming a foster carer. The most important thing is that you can offer stability and support to a child or young person who needs it.
Foster caring is an option for all different types of families - whether you're single, married, cohabiting, have other children or not. Tusla work with foster carers from a variety of religious and ethnic backgrounds, people in same sex relationships, people with disabilities, those who don't currently work and with households in which both parents work.
There's a misconception that foster carers need to own their own home, but this isn't the case. Fosters carers can be homeowners, private renters or living in local authority housing. Ideally, a child will have their own bedroom, but it's not always essential and a house check will be completed to establish the suitability of your home.
