Ok, no problems. If you have a criminal record for any offences you should declare these at an early stage. Not all criminal convictions will discount you from fostering.Barnardos Australia will discuss with you any convictions that are recorded against you.
Ok. Don't count yourself out just yet. Not all criminal convictions will discount you from fostering. Barnardos Australia will give consideration to the type of offence, when it was committed, the extent to which it has a bearing on being a parent and whether it was revealed at the time of application and how you have reflected on your past actions.You cannot apply to become a foster parent if you or anyone living in your household has a criminal conviction relating to children or has been cautioned for specified criminal offences against children and/or some sexual offences against adults. Barnardos Australia will discuss with you any convictions that are recorded against you.
