Welcome to UK Fostering
Here you’ll find everything you need to know about fostering, becoming a foster carer and where you can also apply to become a foster carer.
UK Fostering has been set up by a team of dedicated professionals, with extensive experience in fostering. With experience in front line social work and residential care, we are passionate about supporting the young people and families we work with.
What do we do at UK Fostering?
There are over 44,000 children and young people in foster care throughout the UK, but there is still a shortage of thousands of foster carers to look after the young people who need them. As an independent agency, UK Fostering aims to address this shortfall and make a real difference in the lives of these children and young people.
UK Fostering aims to recruit dedicated and compassionate foster carers, who can provide a loving, stable and active family life for those children and young people who are less fortunate.
On our website you can find out all the information you need to apply for foster caring. We aim to give you all the tools you need to make an informed decision about fostering whether it’s through our forum, FAQ’s, blogs, videos, live chat, phone or email.
