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.
