Forstering in west Hertfordshire

I am thinking about fostering, my mum has done it for many years and it's something I feel I would be good at.
Couple of questions

1) Does having your young young children effect being able to foster? I have an almost 5 and almost 3 year old

2) what are the differences between fostering for the local authority and a private agency

3) can anyone recommend an agency to approach in the west Hertfordshire area

4) is there a difference between the allowances you get from private or LA?

Thank you

Oh and my husband is in the military. We do not live on the base he comes home at weekends so Monday - Friday generally I am alone, would this be a negetive?

Has anyone spoken to you about your interest in fostering yet? Have you thought about contacting Hertfordshire County Council about it?

Can recommend Hertfordshire county council 😀 Recommend you give them a call, as long as you have a spare bedroom they can answer the rest of your questions, it should be a quick turnaround.
