Why foster for Southwark

When a child comes into care, we always aim to place them with Southwark foster carers.

As a foster carer for Southwark, you will receive:

Girl running
  • living costs for each child you foster plus a generous fee
  • full preparation and ongoing training plus 24/7 support and your own allocated social worker
  • extensive professional help if your foster child has health, educational or social needs
  • access to a supportive network of other Southwark foster carers
  • 100 per cent council tax relief if you live within the borough of Southwark and are approved to foster a Southwark child - find out more
