Fostering Lewisham and Greenwich
Fostering in Lewisham
If you could make a difference to a child’s life in Lewisham we’d be delighted to hear from you.
We are very keen to find new carers in Lewisham & Greenwich as there is a strong need for more carers in your area. You need to have at least one spare room. We have carers from many different ethnic backgrounds and with different experiences of life. Each child is different, and that’s why we need a diverse range of carers to support children in care.
Foster carer training in Lewisham
We support and train our foster carers to do an excellent job and make each one feel part of our family. We are a successful fostering agency operating across most parts of England. We have approximately 100 staff and 500 carers. We have 16 offices across England and each office still maintains the family friendly feel. We can offer carers the best of both worlds — the resources and expertise of a large agency but the personal feel and local support which most carers really value and appreciate.

Our relationship with Lewisham children’s services
We’ve supported the local authority in looking after children in care for many years. We know the important staff at Lewisham & Greenwich really well and they trust our services. Moreover, the good relationships with the local authority placement teams mean they regularly ask us to place children in these areas. This means that you could get the first choice for all possible future fostering placements.
We pride ourselves in the way we support and train our carers.
Across the South East we need carers who can support young people aged 10 and above as we get lots of requests to support children within this age range. We don’t usually have referrals for babies, but there is a very high need to support a parent and child/ren. We offer specialised training for parent and child placements. Children taken into care are often not alone, so if you have room for brothers and sisters, so they can stay together, we’d really like to hear from you.
We welcome you to foster in Lewisham
We welcome people of all backgrounds and skill sets to apply to become a foster carer. At the moment we’re very keen to recruit people from a police, youth offending or probation background.
