Hllingdon needs you

To become a foster carer

We feel deeply remorseful that some children are unable to live with their birth families and require foster carers. However, given these circumstances, we must strive to identify the best possible homes for them. Could you provide your valuable assistance in this matter?

At present, Bromley and the wider London area are experiencing a shortage of foster carers. Our mission is to help by recruiting 15 additional fostering families, allowing local children to remain in the area and find loving homes. Download our fostering guide to discover how you can get involved, or call us directly on 0208 347 8741 to learn more about making a real difference in your community.

At GLF, we provide our foster carers with fantastic support that is available 24/7. As a carer, you will also receive financial support. Our fostering payment is a weekly fee that covers the costs of caring for a child and includes a reward element. We do not offer one-off payments for events like birthdays; instead, our carers receive a fixed weekly fee of:

-£450 for children aged 0-10

-£475 for children aged 11+

-£550-1600 for more enhanced children with higher or more complex needs.

Become a GLF foster carer today and receive the support you deserve while making a real difference in your community.

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.
