Fostering in Bromley

We are looking for people to foster children in Bromley

Foster caring is not only a rewarding career path it can also be rewarding financially.  Please see our foster care, pay calculators.
Not everyone is cut out for foster caring. It can be challenging at times and you will need to complete regular training to ensure you are fit to foster.

To be a foster carer you will need to have:

• The time and energy to invest in a child or young person
• A bedroom for the exclusive use of the foster child
• Couples will need to arrange their working hours so that one carer can be available full time
• Single carers will need to be at home full-time or have flexible employment
• A full UK driving licence or have excellent transport links

There is a process to complete prior to being excepted to foster and this can take around 4 months.

It is important to get the right fostering agency from the outset. Each fostering agency is different, some do not foster babies, for example, others offer more beneficial packages in regards to support, training, respite and even pay rates.
