Due to the recent outbreak of coronavirus (COVID 19) we have cancelled all events in March and April 2020. In difficult times children need loving, caring families more than ever so if you were planning to come to an event or would like to find out more about fostering please do still continue to get in touch on 0800 801 530 or email fosteringrecruitmentduty@essex.gov.uk.

If you would like to find out more about the challenges and rewards of fostering, please come to one of our information events.

At these informal events, you can hear first-hand from people who foster and learn about some of the children who need homes. Social workers and foster carers will be on hand to chat and answer your questions.
