What is fostering?

Fostering is looking after a child within your home, on a short or long-term basis. Those who can provide short-term day care can also give great support to our existing foster carers. 

Foster carers are paid fees and allowances to enable them to accommodate children in their home. Foster carers will need a spare bedroom within their home to look after a child over the age of two.

There can be many reasons why a child may need a foster home, including: family illnesses, abuse or neglect, breakdowns in family relations, or a child may have arrived unaccompanied from abroad.

Haringey are looking for London based foster carers, who can offer care, stability and consistency to our children and young people.
