How we make a difference

About Fostering Connections

Unfortunately, not all children and young people are able to live with their own families. They need an alternative that offers them a good, safe and aspirational family home.

Fostering Connections is an independent fostering agency that provides fostering services for looked after children and young people. Our team have extensive experience in fostering, education, therapy and business which equips them with the knowledge and understanding of children and young people, in particular those who are Looked After.

Two of the Founders of Fostering Connections are Foster Parents themselves so understand how Fostering feels on a daily basis. One of our founders has extensive therapy based qualifications and runs our training program.

Whether you are new to Fostering or an experienced Foster Carer transferring to us, you know you are going to be fully supported.

Fostering Connections prides itself that our foster parents reflect the diversity of families and individuals in our society and may be single, married or in a relationship, have a disability, may be of any culture or ethnicity, have children of their own, step children or no children; people of religious faith and those who do not hold religious views.

Our aim is to provide Local Authorities, throughout London and the home counties, with safe and nurturing family homes for children that require them.
