        Eastern Fostering Services provide fostering services in Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. We have a tight-knit, warm and friendly community which spans these three counties.

        I want to be part of a fostering community near me. What do you offer?

        Whilst we do plenty of things cross county as a community of foster carers, we also have dedicated social workers who are on hand to support you. Our carers enjoy regular support groups and coffee mornings. As one of our Cambridgeshire carers says:

        Our social worker has been developing a Cambridgeshire group of carers and we meet regularly and feel like we’ve known each other for ever, (which we really haven’t).  The other carers are a great support and we regularly message each other when we need help or to encourage each other

        Wherever in Essex, Suffolk or Cambridgeshire you live, you can be sure to receive the highest quality support. We are on hand 24/7/365. In addition to this, we offer excellent training opportunities near to where you live, meaning that you don’t have to travel needlessly or excessively.

        We have well-established groups of carers in all three counties so you can be a part of something special near to you. Having a good community of foster carers is an important element of successful fostering. We work hard to make sure that these fostering communities meet regularly and are there to support one another.

        A group of diverse adults and children to represent our foster carers in Essex,, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. This helps prospective carers asking about fostering near me.

        We run regular information events in Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. You can find out more on our Facebook page. You can also keep up to date on our events by checking our Upcoming Events page.
