Fostering or adopting a baby or child

Share this page

Information about fostering or adopting a child in Guernsey is available from Guernsey Foster Care.

You should find out about family benefits that you may be entitled to.

If you hold an employment-related housing licence and, after a period of maternity leave, you are thinking about returning to work on a part-time basis, you will need to  with details of the hours that you want to work.  But you should note that, other than in exceptional cases, it is not normal for employment-related housing licences to be issued for a person working part-time hours.

If you are planning on travelling with your child, you may need to apply for a passport, although this depends on where you are travelling to. For journeys to the UK and within the Channel Islands there is no passport control, however, some carriers require photographic ID for security reasons. Please contact the company you are travelling with for a list of their requirements. For journeys to countries outside of the UK and Channel Islands, all passengers must hold their own passport, regardless of age.

New parents need support for all sorts of reasons and there are a number of organisations, both on and off the island, which can help. Some of them are listed here:

     Islandmums (for local parenting information, activity and event guides)

     Relate (helping couples who are having difficulties in their relationship with one another)
