Islington Fostering

New foster carers needed

It’s unfortunate that children can’t live with their biological families and require foster care. However, it’s crucial to find them the best possible homes. Can you lend a hand in giving these kids a brighter future?

Are you considering becoming a foster carer in the Islington area? 

At GLF, we have a mission to help where we can, and we’re actively recruiting 15 new fostering families to give homes to local children. Currently, there is a shortage of foster carers in Islington, and many children risk being moved out of the area.

GLF foster carers receive 24/7 support and financial assistance, including a weekly payment that covers the costs of caring for a child.

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.
