Fostering with fp.c in  West London

    The children who need fostering in West London

    In West London, we particularly need to recruit foster carers for

    • Sibling groups of younger children
    • Children age 9+ who need short term placements
    • Children age 9+ who need long term/ permanent placements
    • Teenagers who need to remain with foster carers until they reach independence
    • Children who have mild and moderate level learning difficulties
    • Children who have more complex disabilities
    • Parent and Child Placements ( Usually mother and child)

    How our West London foster carers  are supported

If you join our fostering service we will: 

  • Consult you fully about each child needing a foster placement
  • Ensuring that you receive comprehensive induction training and a careful induction before you start fostering
  • Ensuring you receive high level support when you first start fostering, when you take a new child into placement and if/when some extra support is needed
  • Facilitating your contact with other local West London and West London foster carers via access locally based foster carer practice meetings and foster carer training 
  • providing you with access to our telephone helpline - 24 hours per day- 7 days per week
  • arranging for you to have easy access to our in house clinical psychologist for advice about any special needs issues
  • Providing you with regular high level fostering payments- which include a Skills Level payment - alongside the maintenance element- to recognise and value your contribution
  • Providing extra funding to cover the additional costs of a child's access to play and leisure during the summer holidays
  • Providing access to respite and back up care when this is needed

Our work with west London Councils

We are currently working closely with  the West London consortium to ensure that there are sufficient foster carers in the West London area to meet the need for local placements. (The West London Consortium includes Barnett,Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Harrow, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster Borough Council areas)

This is an important goal because local placement allows children to continue at existing schools, retain contact to friends and family and in the longer run it can facilitate arrangements for a child to return to their family where this is the right plan for the child .

if you think you might be able to help us achieve this important goal of ensuring there is a good foster home available locally for every West London child that needs one, we will be very pleased to hear from you.
