Fostering

Choosing to foster is one of the most important decisions you will ever make

We're looking for new or experienced foster carers

We urgently need foster carers who can offer a home to siblings, giving them a chance to stay together. You don't have to be living in the borough. If you think you could provide a home for siblings, please let us know you’re interested in fostering.

Information evenings and weekends – see a presentation on the steps to becoming a carer and hear from current carers to find out what fostering for Thurrock is really like. Presentations begin 15 minutes after the start times:
