As a same sex couple, will our relationship dynamic be taken into consideration in the application process?

Bucks is looking for LGBT+, single, diverse foster carer applicants to care for the children in our County that have a cross section of needs. There are no criteria based on lifestyle choices, status or sexual preferences. You can foster or adopt if you are single, in a couple; married/ unmarried or civil partnership, or are gay, bisexual, lesbian or transgender. Sexuality and gender don’t play any role in the application review – it is about your ability to understand the impact of trauma and how to care for a child given these early life experiences.
