Local carers for local children
We need 150 new fostering households across the county to provide local Kent children with a loving and supportive home for short term and long term stays. We need people to care for older children including teenagers over 13 years old, siblings so they can stay together, and disabled children. We need your help so that they can be homed in Kent and stay within their local community where possible.
We are also looking for carers to look after unaccompanied asylum seeking children who have arrived in the UK without a parent or guardian, and we need your help to provide them with a stable and caring home.
If you live in Kent and you think you could be that amazing person to change a child’s future, then please contact us on 03000 420 002 or request a call back.
