Fostering in Essex

UK Fostering offers opportunities for fostering in Essex and the surrounding areas. We provided a much needed service to local authorities who need loving homes for children and young people, but who have a shortage of foster carers available from their own sources.

Fostering children in Essex

We aim to offer a number of different fostering options to local authorities in Essex. These include everything from remand and respite placements, to emergency placements where there is an urgent need for a foster home. As well as long term, more permanent options for children in need of a stable, supportive environment in which to flourish.

Should you consider fostering in Essex?

Fostering is a rewarding and enriching experience for those who choose to undertake it as a vocation. If you live in Essex and you’re thinking of becoming a foster carer, UK Fostering can help by guiding you through the fostering assessment process and arranging for you to be sent an application pack. If we feel you would be suited to foster, we’ll begin the process of assessing your abilities and bring your case to our dedicated fostering panel.

We offer those fostering in Essex a comprehensive package of financial and practical support, alongside a full training programme to enable you to learn all the skills required to foster.
