Who are Heath Farm?

Heath Farm was founded in 1993, one of the first independent fostering organisations in England, serving London, Kent and Essex.

Specialising in therapeutic foster care, Heath Farm grew and adopted the model of multi-disciplinary working operating from a single site – a wraparound service for looked after children.

We’ve worked hard to build strong, well-established links with local authorities and we were rated as ‘Outstanding’ in our latest Ofsted inspection. As a proud member of NFA Group’s fostering family of agencies, we are LILAC certified, in honour of our high quality standards.

Help to build incredible futures

We provide exceptional training and support to make foster care a genuinely rewarding experience for you and your family, and an equally positive one for the child in your care.

Heath Farm will equip you with everything you need to do a great job and to offer children and young people in your care the best opportunities for living the life they deserve, and prepare them for a happy and independent adulthood.

People from all walks of life can become a therapeutic carer. Can you provide a safe and supportive home? Can you transform a child’s life?
