Children in Kent need your help.

As a Channels & Choices Foster Carer you will be part of a community like no other in the UK. Our outstanding service offers unrivalled support, pay and career development.

Do you have what it takes?

We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, both new to fostering and existing foster carers. All we ask is for your heart and mind to be open to a therapeutic, empathic approach to children who come to live in your home.

Channels & Choices offer full time foster care, short stay (respite) foster care and parent and child foster care.

As a foster carer you will be part of a multi-disciplinary team working with fellow professionals from our fostering, therapy, education and residential teams, working together to achieve outstanding outcomes for children. Our carers benefit from what we believe to be the best financial support package available.

You will be supported to achieve this with high level, high quality training with a range of professionals including Professor David Shemmings OBE.

Existing carers wishing to transfer will benefit from all the above alongside a straight forward guided transition process and the opportunity to speak to carers who have experienced this.
