Fostering in the East and South East

St Christopher’s East and South East team work with foster carers, children and young people across Essex, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.

We are a small, personable team, so you will always know who you are talking to when you call us or drop in for a chat at one of our offices. This includes support workers, who do one-to-one work with the children and young people in your care.

Our comprehensive training programme can be tailored to meet your individual needs and the needs of the young person in your care, so that you have the knowledge and skills to make a difference. On top of this, we offer a healthy pay and benefits package to all our foster carers.

Listening to children is at the heart of everything we do. We have developed children’s forums to hear their views and incorporate them into our plans. We love to celebrate the successes of our children and foster carers and get together at fun, family events.
