Creating Foster families in Basildon
The town of Basildon is located in the county of Essex, 26 miles east of London. It also gives its name to the Borough which includes the nearby towns of Wickford and Billericay.
Basildon was originally designated a ‘New Town’ following the New Towns Act of 1946. This was officially confirmed in 1949 and a Government appointed Basildon Development Corporation was formed and given the task of transforming the designated area into a modern town.
The town has continued to transform with many new additions in recent years like the Festival Leisure Park and The Icon apartment block as well as the new Sporting Village which boasts the only 50 metre swimming pool in Essex.
Basildon is no longer referred to as a ‘new town’ and having passed its 60th birthday looks ahead to the future with much promise.
It is a vibrant town making a great place for families to raise young foster children in.
