Merton needs you

To become a foster carer

We deeply regret the necessity for children to be unable to live with their birth families, thereby requiring foster carers. Nevertheless, as this is the case, we are committed to identifying the best possible homes for them. Would you be willing to offer your assistance?

Currently, Merton and the rest of London are experiencing a shortage of foster carers, leaving many local children without homes. 

To combat this issue, GLF is on a mission to recruit 15 loving and supportive fostering families who can help provide these children with safe and caring homes.

As a GLF foster carer, you’ll receive 24/7 support and financial compensation, including a weekly fee of up to £475 depending on the ages and special needs of the child. Don’t hesitate to get involved and become a part of something truly meaningful.

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.
