Retired foster carer membership


We believe that foster carers should be protected even after their fostering career has come to an end, which is why we offer retired foster carer membership for former foster carers. Our package provides market-leading legal protection insurance that continues to cover everyone in your household if you experience an historic allegation, and a range of other benefits to keep you connected to fostering as well as discounts on days out and holidays. 

To take out this membership you cannot be an approved foster carer and your retired foster carer membership must follow on directly from your previous foster carer membership with us. To access legal support and representation you must be in membership with The Fostering Network at the time you are made aware of the allegation.
