The Process in 4 Easy Steps

Children who live in foster care are vulnerable, so we make sure that our recruitment of foster carers is as safe as can be. If you want to foster with Chrysalis you are supported through a thorough assessment, approval and matching process.

  • You contact us to let us know you are interested in fostering with Chrysalis. We talk on the phone and visit you at home. If both sides agree, we invite you to fill in our application form.
  • Your worker undertakes a full fostering assessment with you. The assessment is based on evidence, and checks and references are taken up. We give you 3 days preparation for fostering training.
  • You are invited to attend Chrysalis’s independent fostering panel. Panel talks to you, considers the report of your fostering assessment and recommends whether to approve you as foster carers.
  • Once you are approved we look for a fostered child who is the right match for you, and carefully plan your first placement…
