Building bright futures for young people

Outlook Fostering provides safe, secure and nurturing foster placements to children and young people who are unable to remain with their birth families. Founded in 2002, our carers are based in London, Essex, Kent and across South East England. Much of our service delivery is directly influenced by the children in our care, and our foster carers are committed to providing the best possible opportunity to the young people they support.

Fostering with us

Investing in relationships and working in partnership has been a cornerstone in Outlook Fostering developing a recognised, quality child-centred service. We also recognise that in order to continue to meet and adapt to children and young people’s needs, they should play an integral part in developing the services we provide.

Outlook Fostering Services is dedicated to placing children and young people with appropriate carers. Thanks to our careful selection and matching process, more than 70% of our children in placement remain with their carer on a long term basis.

If you have already read practical advice on what it takes to become a Foster Carer, you will have an indication of what to expect. However, to really understand how fostering will affect not only you, but other members of your family and the children placed in your care, please read our case studies.

"I have been singing your praises all day. As always a fabulous review and both your commitment and professionalism shine through in that the boys are doing so well and you are clearly working consummately with the care plan and all the parties involved in it. Thank you."
