Refer a friend to foster with us

Get £500 when you refer a friend to foster

Do you know someone who would make a good foster career?

You can earn £500 if you refer them and they are approved.

We urgently need more foster carers in Dorset, both for long and short-term stays. As a valued foster carer yourself, you may know someone who’s been thinking about fostering themselves, but not yet applied.

Why not tell them about our Refer a Friend Scheme? You could receive £500 for every person you refer.

Join the refer a friend to foster scheme

It's simple to join the scheme.

Share the good news with people you think would make good foster carers. Most people can foster as long as they have a spare room and love in their heart. They can be any age as long as they're over 21; be married, single or divorced, and be from any religious or cultural background.

If they have the energy, patience and understanding required to be a foster carer, we'd love to hear from them.

Phone the Fostering Team

All you need to do is ask the person you've nominated to phone the Fostering Team on 01305 225568 option 1. 

They will then have an initial discussion to check suitability and we will then discuss how to proceed.

The person you're referring will also need to give your name during that initial contact. 

If they are approved as foster carers you will receive your cash reward.
