Ealing Fostering & Adoption Connections find foster carers and adopters for local children, who are unable to live with their families. These children come from many different ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds.
Foster carers and adoptive parents are ordinary people who provide something extraordinary to the children they look after. Although challenging, the rewards of helping a child can last a lifetime.
If you have space in your home and in your family then you could make a real contribution to the life of a young person. Don’t rule yourself out without speaking to us first. Change the future.
Our services are set up so that we all work together, without the traditional divisions that are often in place, so we can work in the Ealing way – One team around the child, all there to support you.
In Ealing the children’s social workers, the fostering social workers and our psychologists all work in the same teams, providing a joined up service.
Fostering and adoption won’t always be easy, but together we can do it.
Ealing’s Children’s Services have been rated in the top 10% of authorities in England by Ofsted (2016).
Unfortunately not all children are able to stay at home with their families. When a child needs to leave the family home they will first be placed with a foster carer and later will either return home or move on to permanently live with a long term foster carer or adopter.
