Eight years on, when working with many professionals and children, yes we still are challenged!
However, we always have opinions and a voice and I'm pleased to say we have the constant training, skilled supervision support and working with others to enable us to use these skills to our best capability as foster carers.
Our foster carers come from all walks of life. With training, support and a generous fostering allowance, they provide homes where children can thrive and experience the childhood they deserve.
More than 8,000 new foster carers are needed UK-wide to provide homes for children in need of a foster family. If you’re thinking of becoming a foster carer, now’s the time.

I wanted to say a huge thank you for organising the Sarah Dillon sessions. I feel incredibly fortunate to have experienced three of these and have found them totally compelling and thoroughly amazing!
To hear Sarah explain therapeutic parenting with her passionate delivery has been a huge light bulb moment for me, as I am in early days of developing my knowledge of therapeutic parenting and learning how to support carers in using them. Sarah’s examples really help embed it into practice with ease.
It is also heartening to hear the commitment National Fostering Group has to this approach and demonstrates that its values are truly more than just words in a mission statement.
Dozens of children and young people are awaiting foster parents in Croydon; hundreds across London as a whole.
National Fostering Group has local offices that support foster carers across the South East including Essex, Buckinghamshire, Kent and all areas of Inner London – Milton Keynes, Richmond, Bromley, Croydon, Dagenham, Brighton and Enfield.
