Foster carer recruitment
We are still recruiting foster carers for the borough. General enquiries, information sessions and initial visits are still being conducted using email, telephone calls or video calls.
Please be patient and flexible with us as we introduce these new arrangements, until we can resume face to face contact. Thank you.

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.
