Fostering

Being a foster carer plays a hugely important role for a child in care. You will be supporting them with school and medical appointments, encouraging positive activities, overcoming emotional or physical trauma, whilst providing a safe and nurturing environment they can call home.

Fostering can be difficult, not just for you and the child involved, but all families involved. Nonetheless, it's also incredibly rewarding. You'll be making a difference to children and young people who need your help and love.

We all work together. This way we can make sure the best possible support and services are in place to provide better futures for Hackney's looked after children.
