London & East

My name is Ola Akinfe and I am the Service Manager for the London and East.

The service has been established since 2001. Our local office in Romford is central to many of our carers.

“Our team is forward-thinking and creative. We are committed to maintaining professional standards and we strive to deliver the best possible practice. We take pride in recruiting, training and supervising our valued foster carers to the very highest standards”

Our foster carers and staff team reflect the diversity of our region. They have played an important role in helping us to design a service that meets the needs of the children and young people we look after.

We have a talented team of therapeutically informed foster carers. We provide our foster carers with extensive, accredited therapeutic training to ensure placement stability. At times the work is challenging – but the rewards speak for themselves.

Our London and East service has foster carers from:

  • Buckinghamshire
  • Essex
  • Greater London
  • Kent
  • Oxfordshire
  • Northamptonshire
  • Peterborough
  • Surrey
  • Sussex
  • and surrounding areas.

We are actively recruiting in these areas and looking for carers from Milton Keynes, Romford, London, Rochester, Oxford, Northampton, Guildford, Brighton and Hove.

“The staff are fantastic. They showed me the way forward with fostering. They coached me through it when I started doing respite and you can get hold of them anytime and they get right back to you.” – Paula, Carer 

“We do regular training and have foster carer focus meetings every other month; we get our say. It’s another carer that runs the meeting and we put our ideas to the manager. He gets back to us with feedback.” – Tony, Carer 

“The trips for the children are wonderful. We get together and get to know each other which really helps when children in care go for respite so they all know each other really well.” – Ruth, Carer
