Fostering in London

There is a huge demand for fostering in London, not only because of the high population of people but also because there are many areas where social issues exist which may, for a number of reasons, compound difficulties within the family setting.

Fostering children in London

London is a diverse and often hectic city, with some boroughs requiring more fostering services than others. As such, we strive to offer a flexible range of fostering placements in order to address each type of fostering need. These range from emergency fostering placements, where a foster carer is needed within 24 hours of notice, to short term and bridging placements, and longer term, more permanent foster care. For more information on our London fostering placements, see our Services page, or call a member of the team and we’ll be happy to guide you through what’s available.

London culture: Fostering Diversity

Fostering in London means caring for children from a wide range of ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. UK Fostering recognises that children need to be placed with those who understand their religious or cultural needs, and as such our foster carers come from all walks of life. We try to ensure the needs of these children are always addressed through the matching process, where we will endeavour to place a child with someone form the same religion or background where possible.
