You could have what it takes to become a Foster Carer but you’ll never know unless you get in touch! Are you overwhelmed by the idea of fostering or not sure what to expect? Our friendly staff are here to tell you what Fostering is all about and whether you would qualify to welcome a child or young person into your home.

£500 Referral Reward

If you are a Foster Carer for Barnet or work for Barnet Council we will pay £500 if you successfully recommend a friend or relative to our Fostering Service. Payment will be made on their first placement.
