Services List

Meet the children

In their own words, foster children share how their foster parents have given them the love, stability and security they needed to be happy and successful in all aspects of their lives.

Meet our foster carers

Our foster carers share what they find rewarding about fostering and give advice for those thinking about becoming a foster carer.

Children who need foster care

There are many children who are in need to foster placements in Essex. There is no such thing as the 'ideal' foster family, so we are looking for people who can meet the individual needs of these children.
