Fostering and adoption

We need foster carers and adopters for children in need of care.

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.

Are you looking after someone else’s child or is your child living with another family? Then you might be involved in a private fostering arrangement and need to let us know.
