How to Become
A Foster Carer

From the moment you decide you're interested in fostering a child, we're here to guide you every step of the way.

There are thousands of children across the United Kingdom who, for many different reasons, cannot live with their birth families.

These children are much more likely to have suffered profound neglect and abuse, and they need to find stability, a sense of belonging, clear boundaries and a consistent environment.

But what really makes a difference to these children’s lives are foster carers who are able to help them recover and progress from their difficult early experiences.

I Want to Foster is a service provided by two agencies that are committed to recruiting carers from diverse communities. Watch our foster carers talk about their experience on our YouTube Channel:

Are you ready to foster?

We are looking for creative, mature, sensitive and empathetic people, who really want to make a difference.

Single, married, lesbian, gay, heterosexual, divorced or cohabiting – if you want to foster, we want to hear from you.

Children need love and support, and people of all backgrounds who can give it to them.

So if you have the desire to bring hope, healing and laughter to a child in need of a stable, nurturing home, and feel that you have the qualities required to meet the sometimes challenging demands of taking a child into your life, you could become part of our “family” of foster carers.

  • There are two good reasons to visit Tesco Maldon Extra today ... the first is that they are giving away free tasters of mince pies in the store entrance, the other, far more fulfilling reason, is to visit my fostering stand in the foyer. I have both a combination of helpful informative literature to hand you plus a mind of personal experiences to share as a foster carer myself ... now what are you waiting for??

  • Good Morning folks .... today and tomorrow my trusty IWF stand and me can be found in Tesco Pitsea ... swing by and browse the huge store but before leaving come and find me for a chat about the terrific benefits of becoming a foster carer x

  • A child is not just for Christmas!! Pop along to the festive Gift & Craft Fair today where you will find IWF sandwiched between Festive Wreaths & Decorated Mirrors. I have all day in which to impart my personal experiences of fostering
