Fostering hope in children
We are a small team at Eastern Fostering Services. We believe passionately that we can make a difference in the lives of children. To find out more about who we are, what we do and what we believe in, have a look at What we do.
At EFS I feel like we are all in it together, we really care, its not about the money, its about the day to day care and pushing for best outcomes .. we really strive to be a ‘big family’ and support each other through the good times and not so good.Sam, Supervising Social Worker
How do we ensure that fostering is a positive experience for our children and carers?
Support: We provide excellent support to our foster carers. We know all of our carers and children very well. This means we understand their individual circumstances and needs. Understanding our children and carers is key in our approach to advocating for them. What’s more, our carers agree with us. You can see what our foster carers and children have to say here.
Training: One of our key roles is to help foster carers build knowledge, confidence and resilience. We do this through our varied training and development programme. You can find out more about the excellent training opportunities we offer here.

Putting the FUN into fostering
Being a foster carer is hard work but we believe it should be fun too! We put on plenty of events for our families. These help us to build a supportive fostering community and ensure that we celebrate one another.
As a prospective foster carer, you will need to find out as much as you can. We’re here to help you at this stage of your journey. Why not come to one of our fostering information events? You can find out more about our events on our Facebook page.More info
