H&F needs you

To become a foster carer

We are truly saddened by the fact that some children are unable to live with their birth families and instead require foster care. However, given the reality of the situation, it is our duty to ensure that they find the most suitable homes. Can we count on your assistance to make a difference in the lives of these children?

Currently, there’s a scarcity of foster carers in Hammersmith, Fulham and beyond. We’re on a mission to help as many children as we can, and we hope to attract 15 new fostering families in the area.

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

Everyday is different, I'm never bored, that's probably the best thing. It's not like raising your own children, you have to face different challenges everyday.
