Apply to be a foster carer

Welcome to
Heath Farm

The holistic care approach

Heath Farm is an independent fostering agency operating throughout London, Kent and Essex. We have an outstanding team of carers and staff who specialise in providing therapeutic care for children with complex needs.

We provide the four key services for looked after children – foster care, education, therapy and contact. This wraparound model of care supports children who have complex needs, while working closely with Local Authorities and the child’s family. We pioneered this approach in the early 90s.

A little extra help

Heath Farm foster carers receive free membership to The Fostering Network, which provides benefits like legal, accounting and tax advice for all foster carers, plus a counselling helpline, a medical and first aid helpline and more. When you join us, you’ll also be able to access perks including social activities, a discount scheme for cinemas and family days out, and long service awards.
