What is fostering

We are partnering with 19 other local authorities as part of a regional fostering recruitment hub – Local Authority Fostering South East

We are joining forces to recruit and support more amazing foster carers able to provide safe, loving and local homes for children across the region.

Our fostering team here at the Isle of Wight City Council will continue to support you on your foster carer journey but now you will also benefit from a centralised regional platform for enquiries, with local authorities working together to ensure you get the very best training and support from the start of your fostering journey.

What’s more, when you join us you will now also be joining a wider network of over 2,800 amazing fostering families across the South East, all working together to change the lives of children in our communities.
