Fostering

Fostering information sessions

Foster carers make a difference to the lives of children who are unable to be with their birth families.

If you’re thinking about fostering or becoming a Supported Lodgings, now or in the future, these sessions are for you.

Come and speak to a member of the fostering team and a Hackney foster carer:

If you would like to join one of the sessions, register via the Eventbrite (links below) or email fostering.recruitment@hackney.gov.uk.

Being a foster carer plays a hugely important role for a child in care. You will be supporting them with school and medical appointments, encouraging positive activities, overcoming emotional or physical trauma, whilst providing a safe and nurturing environment they can call home.

Fostering can be difficult, not just for you and the child involved, but all families involved. Nonetheless, it’s also incredibly rewarding. You’ll be making a difference to children and young people who need your help and love.

We all work together. This way we can make sure the best possible support and services are in place to provide better futures for Hackney’s looked after children.
