Fostering makes a difference.
Fostering for Southampton City Council
If you’re interested in fostering in Southampton or the surrounding Hampshire area, we have all the information you need to help you feel confident in your decision before you apply.
What is fostering?
Foster carers provide stable homes for children who can no longer live with their birth families at the current time.
Children who come into the care of Local Authorities are from a wide variety of backgrounds and all have different reasons for being in care. Our foster carers offer a warm, supportive and firm foundation that enables these children and young people to move into the future with confidence.
