I am a smoker, will I be able to be a foster carer?

The health and wellbeing of children is a priority and the Government states they want children to be protected from the harmful effects of smoking. Most fostering services have their own policies surrounding smoking which is taken into consideration when any child is placed with you. Foster carers are given support to stop smoking or are unlikely to be able to foster certain groups of children under five and those with certain health conditions. All foster carers should provide a smoke-free environment for children they wish to welcome into their home.
