Richmond needs you

To become a foster carer

We deeply empathize with the situation of children who cannot live with their birth families and require foster carers. While it is an unfortunate reality, it is our responsibility to find them the best possible homes. Are you willing to assist us in this endeavor?

Looking for a fulfilling way to give back to your community? There are few things as rewarding as becoming a foster carer with GLF. With a significant shortage of foster carers in Richmond and the broader London area, we have made it our mission to find 15 new families who can provide safe and nurturing homes for local children in need.

As a GLF foster carer, you will have the opportunity to make a real and lasting difference in a child’s life, providing them with the support and guidance they need to thrive. Our team will support you 24/7 and provide financial assistance, including a weekly fee calculated based on the child’s age and specific needs. Moreover, we offer training to ensure that you are fully equipped to meet your foster child’s needs.

Our foster care guide is available for free download on the GLF website, and our dedicated team is always available to answer any questions you may have about becoming a GLF foster carer. Whether you’re a single parent, are married, or have a partner, we believe that everyone can make a significant difference and provide a safe and welcoming environment for a local child.

Together, we can make a difference and provide the much-needed love, care, and stability that every child deserves. So join us on our mission to create brighter futures, one child at a time.

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.
