Retired foster carer membership

You are here

If you are no longer fostering, it is important to make sure that you continue to be insured against the risk of allegation. A person who has been fostered by you in the past can make an allegation at any time, regardless of whether or not you are still fostering, and you must be insured at the time the allegation is made in order to qualify for legal support.

For just £18.50 per year, our former foster carer membership ensures you are covered by The Fostering Network’s Legal Protection Insurance Scheme. This insurance provides you with continued legal protection insurance as well as access to a 24-hour legal helpline. Applicants must currently be foster carer members of The Fostering Network who are retiring and retired membership must follow on directly from your foster carer membership.

(Please note, retired membership does not give you access to any other membership benefits.)
