In the spotlight

We’re proud to be partnering with 19 other local councils as part of a new regional fostering recruitment hub – Local Authority Fostering South East.

We’re joining forces for the first time to recruit and support more amazing foster carers able to provide safe, loving and local homes for children across our region.

Our fostering team will continue to support you on your foster carer journey but now you will also benefit from a centralised regional platform for enquiries, with local councils working together to ensure you get the very best training and support from the start of your fostering journey.

What’s more, when you join us you’ll now also be joining a wider network of over 2,800 amazing fostering families across the South East, all working together to change the lives of children in our communities.

Visit the Local Authority Fostering South East website or get in touch to find out more information.

“I wanted to put my professional skills and training to a higher cause; vulnerable children. They need you now more than ever. If you're a professional and want more in life, I recommend fostering. It's challenging, but more rewarding than you can imagine.”

- Medway foster carer, 15 years
