Fostering Team


Dear Churches Together in Medway,

In the manner of St Paul, I am writing an open letter to you all, to ask whether there are "those among you" who may feel called to become foster carers for children who live in Medway, and need someone to care for them whilst they cannot live at home.

Fostering children takes time, patience, and a big heart. It may be challenging and, at times sad but it will also be fun, and one of the most rewarding things you could ever do.

When you foster for Medway you are part of a team, working together to support and care for children who have experienced trauma, loss and disruption to their lives. You will have your own supervising social worker to guide and support you. There is excellent training available and, although we are non profit making, you will be paid an allowance to cover the needs of the child, plus a fee that recognises the good work you do.

We currently need foster carers for our children, people like you. You will need a spare room, and be within driving distance of the Medway Towns.

Fostering may not be for everyone, but if you think it could be your calling, please contact us on 01634 335726 or visit our website.

To find out more, just give us a call; we would love to hear from you. Come and join us, it might be the best thing you ever do.

Please keep us, and the children we care for in your prayers.

Yours sincerely
Medway Council Fostering Team
