YOUR HELP – improving children’s lives

Could you make a difference to a child’s life

Foster carers with Essex County Council help build better, brighter futures for hundreds of children across Essex every year.

Could you provide a loving, safe, stable home and a nurturing environment to support the most vulnerable children in our county grow in confidence and achieve their potential?

You don’t need any specific qualifications to foster, just patience, time and a commitment to improving children’s lives.

To find out more come along to one of Essex County Council’s local events where you can hear first-hand from experienced foster carers, find out more about the children that need foster care and ask a social worker questions.

Herewith the link to our really wonderful 30 second video of our foster carer, Daniella
