Could you offer a supportive, loving home to a vulnerable child in Waltham Forest?
We are looking for new Foster Carers based in and around Waltham Forest to provide a family home for children who can't live with their own families. This care can sometimes be short term emergency care or a more permanent arrangement.
We care for children from all and ethnic backgrounds and welcome carers from all backgrounds, of all ages, ethnicity, sexuality and single parents too!
You will need patience, humour and energy to look after a child. You will also need to have a spare bedroom, unless you are care for babies as they can share your room until they are 2 years old (your room will have to be big enough to have a cot). Being a Foster Carer is like being a parent, but is also a paid professional role which involves training and support and working with other professionals such as social workers & teachers, to give the child the best chances possible in life.
We are proud to be winners of the Children and Young People Now, Public Sector Children's Team 2021 Award for our fostering recruitment and training. Find out more about how to become a foster carer with us.
