Become a Foster Parent

​

Please consider becoming a foster parent.  Because the children have experienced a lot in their young lives, the Department of Social Development is careful in selecting foster parents to try to ensure the children will thrive after placement.

 

We at Hannah’s Place of Safety are strong advocates for fostering Children.  

 

A few of the basic requirements include:

  1. You need to 18 and older

  2. You must have police clearance

  3. If you don’t have police clearance you can apply at your nearest Police station. Cost R114.00

  4. You also need to apply for Child protection clearance – Form 30.  See attached and fill in together with a certified copy of your ID and post to Pretoria. The address is on the form. Please always keep a copy of it for your reference.

  5. Please make contact once you have applied for the clearance as well as the form 30 clearance – then we can set us an interview to meet.

The designated social worker will do the necessary home visit and screening and they will decide if you are fit or not 😊.

This is straight out of the “Children’s Act & Regulations “ Act 38 of 2005 – updated September 2011

  •  You have to be fit and proper person to be entrusted with the foster care of a child.

  • Be willing to undertake, exercise and maintain the responsibilities of such care.

  • Have the capacity to provide and environment that is conducive to the child growth and development.

  • Be properly assessed by a designated social worker for compliance with the above points.

 

The Department of Social Development will make the final decision in terms of your approval to foster.

 

We urge you to open up your hearts to foster children as our children need to be raised with good loving nurturing parents....and NOT in alternative care facilities.

Your life will change as much as the child's life.
