Different types of fostering in Kent.

Just like people, Fostering Agencies are not all the same. They have different support, allowances, quality of training, and access to respite care and support groups.

Not all agencies foster babies, some prefer to look after teenagers, some agencies expect you to be at home full time, others are happy if you have another job.

Is it time for a change?

Do you want to make a positive change in your life? Do you want to experience the satisfaction of keeping children from more harm and seeing them settle down and start thriving?

Then become a foster carer and feel the sense of fulfillment that doing something worthwhile brings, and be the person who can make a difference to a child’s life.
