“We want our children and young people in care to receive the best possible support and help.”
Children in care have experienced trauma and foster carers can help them to heal.
When you foster with Essex County Council you’ll never be alone. You will have a whole team of professionals offering training, guidance and support including; Mental Health Coordinators and Clinical Psychologists. You’ll have your own dedicated social worker, access to support networks including peer to peer, 24/hr support line, respite, and high quality and bespoke training packages – all locally provided.
We’re rated Outstanding by Ofsted, and that’s thanks to the incredible support systems and training programmes we offer our foster carers.
