Foster with us
We’re looking for passionate and enthusiastic people to become foster carers in the West Midlands and the Eastern Region. St Christopher’s will be alongside you for every step of your fostering journey, whether it’s supporting you through the application process or being available once a child moves into your home.
Our two fostering services, based in West Bromwich and Chelmsford, are rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and we have an additional office in Stevenage. We offer round-the-clock support and comprehensive training.
When you look after a child in care they may have had a difficult start in life. The love and support you can provide through fostering will show them what it’s like to live with a caring family and help them realise they deserve to be happy and loved.
'This is the first place that have tried to understand me and not change me. They asked me a lot of questions and took their time working it all out and then they showed me and they get it, this is what I am about.'
Children and young people are at the heart of everything we do, so we want to find new foster carers who will also put children first. Get in touch with us to speak to a member of our team or take a look at the information below to find out more about who can foster, support for foster carers and fostering allowances.

Jo and her daughter Hannah have been part of a foster family for a number of years now. They love the way fostering allows them to help another child who is looking for a safe, caring place to live.
