Fostering in Kent

Fostering with FosterCare UK

FosterCare UK is an independent fostering agency, with an office based in Ashford. This means that we work with local authorities across the South East of England to provide high-quality fostering services in Kent when the authorities own supply of foster carers isn’t large enough to meet demand.

With over 10,000 children in care across the South East and London, we work in partnership with local authorities, from Medway Council and Kent County Council to Brighton & Hove Council and Surrey Council, to place children with our foster carers and their families to provide a secure and stable home.

At FosterCare UK we have 50 carers and working with our expert staff, we have recently been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. This is a great achievement and a testament to way in which we work togethrer to make a difference to children and youg people's lives.

As part of the FosterCare UK family, you are supported with expert guidance and advice, as well as training and support, 24/7 365 days a year.

As a foster carer, you and your family have access to support groups which provides you with the opportunity to get to know other foster carer in our family and we also have time for fun! Whether it’s meeting in the local park, visiting a zoo or spending the day at the theme park - be assured we always make time to spend with our family.
