Help teach a child in care they are special every day.

A safe and nurturing home filled with love and security would make a child’s birthday wishes come true. Hundreds of children in Essex need your help.

Looking after a foster child – like caring for any child – can be challenging. Essex County Council Fostering & Adoption offer a full programme of training and support to give foster carers the skills and confidence to do their job effectively. They help you bond with your foster child and develop a relationship that can last a lifetime.

Learn about what support is available for you and your family.
