Foster Carers


Could you open your heart and home? Think about fostering.

We would like to hear from new applcants as well as existing foster carers.

We provide a competitive allowance (fostering is a vocation not a job so may not affect any benefits you may receive). We also provide outstanding support. Barking and Dagenham's fostering service were judged to be outstanding in all six areas by Ofsted.

We value our foster carers as professionals.

Your relationship status is not a barrier to fostering however you must be over 21 and have a spare room for a child.

If you work please ask about short breaks fostering.

If you would like to find out more or to apply please call 020 8227 5988, email or visit We look foward to hearing from you.
