Why foster with Haringey?

Fostering changes lives, both for those being fostered and foster carers.

People foster for a number of reasons, but overwhelmingly it’s because they want to make a difference to a child’s life.

There are many children in Haringey who need foster carers.

Agreeing that a child shouldn't live with their family is not always an easy or clear cut decision. Neither is the decision to become a foster carer.

By choosing to foster with us you have access to many benefits including:

  • 24 hour support, 365 days a year
  • Access to specialist and tailored training
  • All the information available about a child is given to you when considering a placement
  • Shared resources with neighbouring Boroughs via the North London Fostering Consortium (external link)
  • Regular updates from our foster carers newsletter
