Join our London and Essex fostering family

Our London and Essex fostering team are based in Chislehurst and are working hard to create incredible experiences for children in care, so they can go on to lead bright and fulfilled futures. Situated in South East London, we provide stable, loving foster homes to children living across all the boroughs of London, as well as Essex.

We're a friendly, dedicated and highly experienced team of fostering professionals, who collectively, have more than 200 years of experience working in careers devoted to children, young people, and families. And we’ll be by your side every step of the way on your journey to becoming a foster parent, and beyond.

We recognise that every family is different and so the support we offer is tailored to the needs of our foster carers and children. Some people need lots of hands-on support, including weekly supervision and regular 1:1 mentoring, others prefer a slightly more relaxed approach, particularly where they’ve been fostering for many years and have children who are doing extraordinarily well in their care. And many of our families need something in between.

Join our team and help us provide even more children in foster care with the foundations they need to reach their full potential.

Helping you grow professionally

We’re committed to your personal development and offer a wide range of training courses, including mandatory topics, such as Safeguarding and Child Protection and Secure Base, as well as more advanced and specialist courses, such as Autism, Theraplay, Child Sexual Exploitation and more.

You don’t necessarily need experience to become a foster parent as our training programme will give you the skills and knowledge you need to make an extraordinary difference. You will, however, need to have the right qualities - resilience, passion and endless warmth and kindness.

Our training programme

Generous allowances and benefits

You’ll receive a generous fostering allowance while a child is in your care, designed to recognise your professionalism and commitment. We also offer other benefits, such as allowances for birthdays and religious festivals, as well as two weeks paid respite.

Plus you'll have access to our rewards platform where you can find hundreds of discounts to some of your favourite shops, restaurants and family experiences.
