What is fostering?

When a child can't live at home or with a close relative or family friend, they become a child who is cared for by the local authority. Foster parents provide children with a safe home on a short-term or longer-term basis.

Coming into care is hard, whatever the circumstances. Foster carers provide children in care with safety, stability and a nurturing home environment where they can be given the best opportuntiy to flourish. Older children can also benefit from living with a foster family who support them with learning life skills as they become an adult. 

In the East of England, we need at least 300 more foster families so we can match the children who come into care with the best local foster family for them.
