There is a shortage of foster carers in Redbridge, and the problem has been getting worse over the past few years.
As London’s fostering agency, GLF is committed to helping fill the shortfall of carers in the borough.
Our mission is to be able to offer the best possible home to every child that comes to care, but to do this we need more foster carers. Because if there aren’t enough foster carers available in Redbridge then children will be moved from the area, away from their friends, family and community.
Redbridge has a very diverse population, and this is mirrored in the children in care. That’s why carers are needed across all ethnicities.
At GLF we are always looking for local carers, and are especially interested in hearing from anyone in the follow areas in Redbridge: Chadwell Heath, Wanstead, Seven Kings, Hainault, Goodmayes, Woodford, Wanstead Park, Redbridge, Ilford, Aldborough Hatch, Aldersbrook
