About Fostering Hearts

Fostering Hearts: Dedicated to Supporting and Improving the Lives of Children in Foster Care


At Fostering Hearts, we understand that being placed in foster care can be an incredibly difficult transition for children. That’s why our mission is dedicated to making sure each and every child is given the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.


We prioritize providing a safe and supportive environment for all the children who enter into foster care with us, as well as offering a range of services and resources to ensure foster families are able to provide the best possible care. We also work alongside Local Authority partners to match children with suitable approved foster carers.


Fostering Hearts prides itself on having a team of highly dedicated professionals who are committed to providing compassionate, reliable support both for foster families and the children they take in. We understand how difficult this transition can be and strive to make it as smooth as possible by offering our unwavering support throughout the process.


Ultimately, we believe that every child has something special inside them—a spark—and it’s our passion at Fostering Hearts to help these young individuals find it, nurture it, explore their talents, and follow their dreams. And with your help, we can make sure that no child in foster care is left behind or forgotten about; they have just as much of a right to thrive and reach their full potential like any other child!

“At Fostering Hearts, we want foster parents to know that they’re not alone when it comes to raising a child in care. Our team of dedicated professionals is here to provide unwavering support and resources every step of the way, so they can ensure their foster children have the best future possible.”

Rahima Kadir, Registered Manager

About Our Agency

Fostering Hearts has grown from our sister agency Greater London Fostering, as we believed our carers who lived outside of London deserved to have a local, dedicated agency which understands the needs of the area our carers live in.

We formed in 2020, and have grown since then – we now support about 20 children and 15 families across Southern England and the Midlands.

We are so proud of our carers, our staff and mostly our children.

Our Promise To You


We are here for our foster carers 24/7 365 days a year. We know that in order to help a child succeed, a carer needs out support.


We treat foster carers as central to the team, not an after thought. Our carers are always treated with the respect their positions deserve.


We do what we say we'll do, when we say we'll do it! Our carers and our children know our word is out bond and they can depend on us.
