Why foster with us

Why foster in Lewisham.

Fostering for Lewisham Council means that: 

  • you are our first choice when we are finding placements – we always look within our own team of foster carers before going elsewhere 
  • you are much more likely to get regular local placements with us, than through an external agency 
  • the investments we make in fostering stay in the borough, which benefits local children, birth and fostering families. 

If you are already a foster carer, speak to us about transferring to our team.
