    How to Become a Foster Carer in Greenwich

    Becoming a foster carer in Greenwich is simple:

    1. Complete our enquiry form.
    2. We’ll contact you within 24 hours. In this phone call, we’ll discuss fostering as a career opportunity for you and answer any questions you have. We’ll also arrange an initial meeting in our office and organise a time for a home visit. This is an opportunity to talk in depth about becoming a foster carer and what it entails.
    3. After the home visit, we’ll assign a social worker to you who will start the formal process of becoming a foster carer. This involves 6-8 visits to your home and a 3-day training session. OwnLife Fostering aims to have the whole process completed in roughly 8 weeks.
    4. The final stage in becoming a foster carer is for you and your assigned social worker to attend a fostering panel for consideration of approval. After this, you are ready to start your new career in foster care.

    The most important thing is that you have what it takes to inspire children and young people to own and take control of their own lives, and the determination to never give up.

    Fostering in Greenwich

    There are children all across the South East who are faced with difficult circumstances and need to spend time being cared for in a new loving and caring environment. To help minimise disruption to their current lives, we aim to place foster children and teenagers in foster homes within their local area.

    If you live in Greenwich and you have a spare bedroom, then you might well have what it takes to become a foster carer.

    At OwnLife Fostering we are recruiting foster carers who are interested in fostering in Greenwich. If you already have experience in foster care and have considered transferring agencies, we would love to hear from you.
