About Foster East

There is an urgent need for foster carers in the East of England. More than 7,000 children are in the care of their local authority in our region, with 150 more children coming into care every month.

Funded by UK Government logo

To encourage more people to become foster carers, the 11 local authorities responsible for Children's Services in the East of England are working together to deliver Foster East. 

Funded by the Department of Education, Foster East is a new, collaborative approach to foster carer recruitment and support. Every individual will be nurtured through their fostering journey with their local council, with free expert training and support available.
