Our Fostering Service is focused on improving the lives of children in Southend.

Our amazing foster carers are provided with the best local support and training to help make sure they can provide safe and secure homes for the children they care for.

We now offer council tax exemption* to our foster carers, who live in and outside of our city, as part of our commitment to financially support them and make their fostering homes more affordable. Contact us to find out more about joining our fostering community today.
