fostering in medway

In the spotlight

In September 2021, we launched our new fostering allowances package. This means our offer to foster carers is in line with fees paid by neighbouring councils and independent fostering agencies.

We’re now able to better support our foster carers so they can provide safe and nurturing environments.

With 439 Medway-based children and young adults needing safe and protective homes, we're reaching out to you. If you can inspire a young person and advocate for their needs, phone 01634 335 726 or email

“I was a Medway foster child at one time. That is why I now foster for Medway Council. I trust that the children are safe and have a secure and dedicated team behind us.”
