Transfer to Lewisham

If you are currently fostering through a private fostering agency or another local authority and would like to transfer to Lewisham, we would love to hear from you.

There are many benefits from transferring to foster with Lewisham Council.

We try to place our children with our own foster carers where possible. This means you are our first choice when we are finding placements. You are much more likely to get regular local placements with us than through an external agency.

If you live in or around Lewisham, fostering with us makes the most sense. Any help and support you may need will be nearby. It will also benefit the children in your care as they would not have to leave their school, friends and things that are familiar to them.

Fostering with Lewisham would mean making a difference in your local community and helping Lewisham children in need.
