I would like to foster when my dc are older. I am a married and my dh is in good health however I am a wheelchair user. Does anyone know if this would prevent me from fostering? My dh works full time and we have six soon to be seven children of our own. Own of our daughters has autism so we have experience of children with SEN.

This is a conversation that you should have with a fostering agency or your local authority. The first question you would be asked is 'do you have a spare room?' if the answer to this is yes, you could then go on to discuss the practicalities of fostering. Good luck!
