Why foster with us

Why foster in Lewisham.
Website survey

We want your help with improving our website so it is easier to use, and provides the information that residents need. Help us by filling in this short survey.

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.
