Many of the youngsters in need of foster care are teenagers. Often these are young people who have had difficult home-lives and whose families are no longer able to look after them.
If you are thinking about fostering teenagers, you need to have a genuine interest in helping teens, and it helps if you have cared for this age group before.
Perhaps you’ll have brought up teenagers of your own, or maybe you’ll have worked with teens. Although useful, this is not obligatory, and the main thing is that you have a genuine interest in working with teenagers and are committed to caring for them.
