Fostering and adoption

In Hammersmith & Fulham we believe that the best place for children and young people is with their families. However, sometimes this is not possible and we need adopters and foster carers for children in need of care.


Our fostering service is a joint service with The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council.


We are now part of Adopt London which brings together four regional adoption agencies providing adoption services for 23 London local authorities
