Haringey needs

To become a foster carer

It’s unfortunate that some children cannot live with their birth families and require foster care. However, knowing this, it’s vital for us to find the most suitable homes for them. Could you lend a hand?

Are you looking to make a real difference in your community while also receiving fantastic 24/7 support and financial aid?

Consider becoming a foster carer with GLF in Haringey, London! 

Currently facing a shortage of foster carers, GLF is on a mission to recruit 15 new fostering families to provide homes for local children who might otherwise be moved out of the area. 

Our fostering payment is a weekly amount that includes the costs for caring for a child, as well as a reward element. With payments ranging from £450 to £1600, we offer differing amounts of support based on the needs of the children.

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.
