Fostering

Choosing to foster is one of the most important decisions you will ever make

We're looking for new or experienced foster carers

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have cancelled our events up to the end of April. Thurrock children do still need foster carers, however, so please do let us know you’re interested in fostering.

Information evenings and weekends – see a presentation on the steps to becoming a carer and hear from current carers to find out what fostering for Thurrock is really like. Presentations begin 15 minutes after the start times:

  • Tuesday 12 May, 6pm to 8pm, Thameside 2, Third Floor, Thameside Complex, Orsett Road, RM17 5DX
  • Wednesday 20 May, 6:30pm to 8:30pm, Upminster Golf Club, 114 Hall Lane, Upminster, RM14 1AU
