Foster in Kingston Upon Thames

Become a GLF Carer

We empathise with the unfortunate reality where some children cannot live with their birth families, requiring the support of foster carers. However, given this situation, we prioritize finding the best possible homes for them. Can you lend a hand in helping us achieve this crucial goal?

There is currently a critical need for foster carers in Kingston, as well as the rest of London. 

Our mission is to assist in any way possible and find 15 new fostering families to provide local children with loving homes they may not otherwise have. If you’re interested in learning more, you can access our guide to fostering for download and plenty of useful information to help answer your queries. Otherwise, give us a call on 0208 347 8741, and we’ll explain how you can make a genuine difference in your community. As a GLF foster carer, you’ll have access to exceptional 24/7 support and receive financial remuneration. The fostering payment is a weekly flat fee, which covers all the costs of caring for a child, including a reward component. The sums paid to GLF carers range from £450 to £1600 per week, with the enhanced funding reserved for more challenging cases with significant requirements.

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.
