Fostering in

Children and teenagers in Sutton need foster carers


Right now there is a shortage of foster carers in Sutton, that’s why we’re looking for dedicated people to help change their lives.

Young people come into care for many different reasons, but they all have the same thing in common, they need stable homes and loving people to take care of them.

How to become a foster carer:

  • Arrange a call with a member of our recruitment team
  • Have an initial visit (virtually) to learn more about fostering and how it would fit into your lifestyle
  • Join us for Skills to Foster training – a detailed two day training course
  • Complete an application
  • Begin your assessment
  • Become an approved foster carer

Let’s get started

If you have a spare bedroom and a good level of availability then there shouldn’t be anything holding you back. The next steps are up to you 🙂


Hands down GLF has been amazing. In the good times and the bad times, GLF has been there for me.

You probably have a lot of questions about fostering.

Luckily we have a lot of experience, so can usually answer them honestly. We are really happy to have an informal chat with you, about fostering, whether you are suitable, and what it’s really like. So why not arrange a 15 minute call – we promise you it will save you several hours of searching the internet for answers, plus, we really love talking to people about fostering.
