Children &
Fostering

There are lot's of children that need fostering

There are many children in the UK who cannot live with their own families and so need to be fostered into a loving and caring home. Often, they are missing the support children and young people need to thrive in life. Foster carers are trained and supported, to begin to offer this.

However, there are simply not enough foster carers to meet the needs of so many children in care. Greater London Fostering is an agency that exists to and works with local authorities to fill the gaps that they cannot.
