There is a shortage of foster carers in Waltham Forest, 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 Waltham Forest.
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 Waltham Forest then children will be moved from the area, away from their friends, family and community.
How to become a foster carer:
- Arrange a call with a member of our recruitment team
- Have an initial visit (virtually) to learn more about fostering and how it would fit into your lifestyle
- Join us for Skills to Foster training – a detailed two day training course
- Complete an application
- Begin your assessment
- Become an approved foster carer
Let’s get started
If you have a spare bedroom and a good level of availability then there shouldn’t be anything holding you back. The next steps are up to you 🙂
