Fostering if you’re LGBTQ
You can be a foster carer whether you’re gay or straight – it’s your personality and character that makes you a good foster carer, not your sexual orientation.
As long as you’re over 21, have a spare bedroom and want to make a difference then you’re what we’re looking for!
Parallel Parents has been rated “outstanding” by Ofsted in our last two inspections!
We pride ourselves on the”outstanding” levels of support we offer to our foster carers and our focus on the best outcomes for all children and young people in our care.
In our last inspection, Ofsted said “children and young people are at the heart of this agency’s practice and this is demonstrated throughout the service… Children and young people make considerable progress and achieve excellent outcomes in their lives.”
They also said “foster carers receive excellent supervision and support…. A number of foster carers stated that the supervision and support they receive from this agency, was far superior to that of other fostering agencies.”
