Interested In Fostering


21 November 2017

Are You Interested In Fostering In London?

Xcel 2000 is an established independent foster care provider who has been providing foster care services to children and communities across London and the Southern England for over 15 years. We have found fostering to be incredibly rewarding for all parties involved. If you are interested in fostering in London or are looking for foster agencies in London then look no further and get in contact with our team today. 

Can Anyone Apply To Become A Foster Carer?

Yes, anyone can apply to become a foster carer, however at Xcel 2000 we do look for particular qualities in our foster carers. For a list of what we expect and look for in our foster carers please click here. In order to become a foster carer you'll also be required to have a full assessment by a qualified social worker and a number of background and security checks will be completed.

The process of becoming a foster carer normally takes around 3 - 6 months due to the security procedures and background checks required. We are looking for foster carers from all walks of life to help with our diverse society so if you are interested in fostering in London then we would love to hear from you.  

Is Previous Experience Of Working With Children Required?

Although it's useful to have experience working with children it is not essential. Experience in bringing up children, working with young people with disabilities or the elderly is a plus. If you're thinking of fostering in London it is important to consider why you want to foster and to think if you will be a suitable foster carer that can support a child.  

What Are The Allowances For Foster Carers?  

We provide as much support, training and help as possible to each one of our carers and value them and the service they do, all of which is reflected in the allowances that we pay to our carers. For further information on the pay for fostering in London please contact us.
