Fostering in Tower Hamlets

There is a growing need for foster carers in the Tower Hamlets area – could you be one of the people that starts the journey towards meeting that need, today?

Could you foster in Tower Hamlets?

It’s important that we find people willing to foster in Tower Hamlets, as there are currently children in, and coming into care, requiring placements in this area. As a foster carer living in Tower Hamlets, and working with Welcome Foster Care, you will be helping to support a child/ren in need by maintaining stability and consistency for them. This will be enabled by you providing them with the vital care and nurture that they require, and helping them to maintain contact with the important people and resources in their lives.

For some children, important people will include their siblings, whom they may come into care with. As such, we are looking for carers who have the space to take on brothers and sisters, so we can keep the family together.
