Fostering in South London

Rated Ofsted 'Outstanding' for over 15 years

South London fostering agency

Our South London fostering centre is based in Sutton and has been rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for over 15 years. We support a passionate and growing team of foster carers in South London and Greater London, alongside our Enfield centre.

As a specialist therapeutic foster care agency, we work with children and young people who have more complex needs. While this is incredibly rewarding, it can also be challenging at times. With over 30 years’ experience in therapeutic foster care, we’ve developed a package of wrap-around support for foster carers that includes an entire team of experts available to them and the young people in care.

While our support is unrivalled, it’s also important that our families are able to build connections with other foster families. We host regular events including themed parties, summer holiday activities and our annual ISP Fun Day, as well as an awards event every year to recognise the achievements of our foster families and children.

We have a friendly and welcoming community of foster parents with varying levels of experience; some have been fostering with us for over 10 years, while others are new to fostering and benefiting from the experience of others through our various meetups, training and private WhatsApp group.

As well as a specialist training and support package, foster carers also receive a generous fostering allowance – up to £664 per week, depending on your experience and training – plus additional allowances and rewards.
