Are you looking to make a difference in a child's life? Become a foster carer in Essex with Futures For Children.
Futures for Children is part of the Futures Group and was established in 1999. Our Essex office is based in Chelmsford and we also offer support to Foster Carers and Looked After Children in the following areas:
Isle of Grain
There are many reasons why a child or young person might come into care. Whether it be illness within the family, a family breakdown, drug or alcohol abuse in the home, or sadly due to physical, emotional or physical abuse and neglect.
It is this reason that children and young people in care sometimes present challenging behaviour. However, you will receive free comprehensive and professional training and 24/7 support from our team of experienced Social Workers, so you will never have to face anything alone. With your care and guidance, these children will receive a second chance in life.
We have a fantastic team of Foster Carers in Essex who are supported by our local team based at our Chelmsford office.
Our Foster Carers in Essex are a group of fabulously varied people, there is no ‘perfect’ person we look for. There are many misconceptions around becoming a Foster Carer. The truth is, you can foster a child or young person whether you're married or single, no matter your race, religion, gender or sexuality. Whether you are a homeowner or renting, have children of your own or no experience at all!
The only thing you need to be considered to start your fostering journey is, to be over the age of 25, have a spare bedroom and the space in your heart to love a foster child. Most children in care lack the positive family experience that most of their peers would have, but all it takes is one person, a person like you, to make a difference.
