Fostering in the South East of England

Each year, the number of referrals of children and young people we get from local authorities increases. During 2019, over 6,794 from areas in the South East including London and Kent were referred to us. This is why we feel it is so important for anyone who is considering becoming a foster parent to get in touch with us today to see how they can help.

Welcome to FCA South East. We have lots going on in our region which spans from Kent to Bournemouth and London to Brighton, it also includes the Isle of Wight.

Fostering support at FCA South East

Within our region we have over 122 carers that are supported by around 39 staff. We all have as much fun as possible, and come together whenever we can for local events and bigger regional events. Every year we have an awards ceremony for all our young people and their carers, we also have region wide Christmas parties and the ‘Big Sing Off’ where we get to perform with our best singing voices in front of an audience of over 600 other foster carers, staff and children and young people.

Take a look at our carer satisfaction survey for South East.
