Adoption & Fostering

Image of 2 Adopted Children who had been in Foster Care for some time

Kent County Council (KCC) are looking for people who can provide loving forever homes to sibling groups of all ages, young children with medical needs, and those interested in the Foster to Adopt scheme.

KCC take pride in offering adopters a wide range of support, not only during their assessment period but also once the child has been adopted and beyond. Adopters can use the comprehensive post-adoption service

KCC is also looking for Foster Parents. Fostering is caring for a child in your own home when they are unable to live with their birth family. If you choose to become a foster carer, you can improve a child's life by offering them support, guidance and care, in a safe and nurturing environment.

Foster carers stay in contact with the birth families of the children placed with them, with a view to help children return to their birth family where possible.

All of KCC's foster carers are supported by a team of professionals from social services, education and health care.
