The City needs you

To become a foster carer

We are really sorry that children can’t live with their birth families, and need foster carers – but given they do, we need to find the best homes for them. Can you help?

Hey there! We have a mission to help out where we can, especially with the shortage of foster carers in the City and the rest of London. That’s why we’re looking to recruit 15 new fostering families to give homes to local children. This will prevent them from having to move out of the area.


If you’re interested in getting involved, you can download our guide to fostering for useful information and answers to your questions. Alternatively, give us a call on 0208 347 8741 and we’ll tell you more about how you can make a real difference to your community!


As a GLF foster carer, you’ll receive 24/7 support from us, both financial and practical. You’ll be rewarded with weekly payments that are specifically allocated to caring for a child, including an additional amount as a reward for your invaluable contribution! We’ve got different payments based on the age and needs of the child, ranging from £450 to £1600.
