Foster Care Agency UK
Our foster carers help to change the lives of children and young people across the South East who are no longer able to live with their family – something which can negatively impact their development and progression through life if not properly supported.
A child may come into care for a variety of reasons, ranging from violence and abuse at home to the death or severe illness of their birth parents. Each situation is as unique as each child in care, as is the duration of their time in foster care – and there are types of foster care that can support any child.
When a child or young person is removed from their homes, the local authority must decide what happens to them next; whether they can return home or must be placed into foster care. This is where we step in. FosterCare UK are considered a professional authority in foster care agency in London who provide an exemplary fostering service. We are often approached to support local authorities in placing children in care.
Fostering in your local area means that your foster child can continue living in a familiar environment. This will mean that they can continue their education at the same school and stay in contact with their existing friends. Such continuity can make all the difference in the world when the rest of their lives are so tumultuous.

You’ll have the opportunity to meet with existing foster carers and hear their fostering stories. You will also have your own supervising social worker and the backing of the FosterCare UK team to answer and questions you might have. FosterCare UK has the same resources as other large fostering agencies but without losing that special friendly and family atmosphere.
Almost anyone can be a foster carer. Your marital status, whether you are LGBT, nor your race are factors, and you don’t even need any previous parenting experience. The only age requirement is that you’re over 21 and you do need to be in good health. It is also essential that you have a spare bedroom so that any foster children in your care can have their own private space. Learn more about our fostering recruitment process now.
