Fostering in Enfield

Rated Ofsted 'Outstanding' for over 15 years

Enfield fostering agency

Our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ Enfield fostering centre has been training and supporting a close-knit team of therapeutic foster parents in Enfield and the surrounding North London boroughs for over 15 years.

Together with our Caterham fostering centre, we work with local authorities across London to provide children and young people with the best possible care and achieve extraordinary outcomes.

Located near Enfield High Street, the centre has excellent facilities for training, therapy and social events, and is well-placed to work closely with London local authorities to find loving foster homes for vulnerable children within the local area.

As an organisation, we’ve had over 35 years’ experience of working with children and young people with complex needs and have developed a package of specialist support services and expertise to ensure that foster carers receive all the help they need to make a long-lasting difference. These services include an ongoing therapeutic care training programme, 24/7 helpline with a qualified social worker, regular supervision and mentoring, as well as therapy and educational support for children.

We’re a close and supportive team, and foster parents are encouraged to spend time together at our centre through a variety of family events, support groups and lunches. We also host regular events for the whole family to enjoy, including themed parties, Summer holiday activities and day trips, as well as our annual ISP Fun Day.

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