Ealing needs you

To become a foster carer

We recognize that it’s truly unfortunate when children are unable to live with their biological families and require foster carers. However, since this is the case, we strive to provide them with the best possible homes. 

Can you be of assistance in this noble cause?

In Ealing and across London, there is a shortage of foster carers. Make a difference in your community by becoming a GLF fostering family. Our goal is to find 15 new families to provide local children with homes. Download our fostering guide for more information, or call us at 0208 347 8741 to get involved.


As a GLF foster carer, you’ll receive around-the-clock support and financial assistance. Our weekly payments cover child care costs and include a reward element. We make the process simple by offering a fixed weekly fee, avoiding one-off payments. Our fees range from £450 (under 11) o £475 (over 11) upto £1600 for caring for children with higher or more complex needs.


Join us in giving local children the care and home they deserve!

We asked our carer Jacqui, what's the best thing about fostering?

Every day is unique and exciting, never dull. That's one of the best things about working in childcare. Unlike parenting, you'll encounter fresh challenges daily. Join us for a rewarding career in childcare, where each day brings something new and fulfilling!
