How is NFS membership provided by agencies?

Adoption & fostering agencies can subscribe to NFS in order to provide membership to their families, and families-to-be.


  • Any LGBT adopters are provided membership from the point they start their assessment with a member agency. Their membership lasts for as long as that agency remains a member.
  • Any LGBT foster carers are provided membership from the point they start their assessment with a member agency. Their membership lasts for as long as they are foster carers with that agency and for as long as that agency remains a member.
Families can also join NFS themselves, via this website – if their agency isn’t an agency member – or at the start of their fostering or adoption journey. Any family that’s supported by a member agency according to the criteria above will automatically be provided free membership.
