Give a child a brighter future

Foster carers change lives. There is an urgent need in Slough.

Become a foster carer through Slough Children First and you will receive:

  • Excellent training
  • 24/7 support
  • Generous payments


Foster carers look after children or young people who cannot live with their own families. This could be due to reasons that include illness, relationship breakdown or concerns about their welfare. Foster carers provide children and young people with a safe and nurturing family environment, caring for them as though they were their own children.

In March 2018 (latest figures) there were 55,200 children in England living with foster families. In Slough we have a fantastic team of foster carers but we always have a need for more! Slough Children First website gives you information about fostering.

There are different types of foster care. Some foster carers may look after a child for a few nights or weeks. Other foster carers may look after children and young people until they reach adulthood.

Fostering can be a life changing choice – the satisfaction of knowing you have helped a child by offering them a family environment whilst their own family are experiencing a crisis can be enormously rewarding. Fostering can be hard work at times, but it is also tremendously satisfying.

Slough Children First welcomes enquiries from everyone, so get in touch today to find out about the generous payments and support we offer. Text FOSTER to 60066 or call 01753 690777.
