Have you considered fostering in Essex London

At Infinity Foster Care, we hold the conviction that one of the most impactful actions you can take is to create a significant, positive, and enduring change in the life of a child or young person


In the sphere of Fostering Essex, studies have consistently highlighted the critical role of foster carers, particularly within the context of Foster Care Essex, in offering vital support to children in their moments of need.

Essex, with its diverse and substantial population, faces distinct challenges in foster care. A significant issue is the increasing demand for foster homes, influenced by socio-economic factors, family breakdowns, and a growing recognition of child welfare needs. This rising need frequently exceeds the supply of available foster care, leading to a notable shortage of foster carers in the area.
