We undertake the following statutory services:-

In Havering we have high aspirations for our children and young people and we know that foster carers are key in delivering high levels of care that our looked after children need.
The service provides support to Care Leavers and delivers the contact service. We work to ensure that young people meet their full potential and live fulfilling lives after leaving care, our team state, “a care leaver who enters adulthood feeling supported in their choices whilst maintaining their own independence provides an enormous level of job satisfaction.”
We are looking for dedicated individuals to act as personal advisors with creativity, patience and determination to build working relationships to deliver excellent outcomes.
