Fostering in Kent, London and Essex
Kasper Fostering is a not for profit child-focussed foster care organisation. Since 1997 we have provided a high quality independent fostering service for children and young people living in Kent, London and Essex. Read more about us.
We are recruiting new and experienced foster carers across Kent and Medway to look after vulnerable children and young people who have experienced significant trauma.
Could you provide a young person arriving in the UK alone, often with nothing and no-one, a safe, loving and stable home environment? Could you support an adolescent to recover from their childhood experiences, manage overwhelmingly difficult feelings and find their independence?

Child-focussed, family-oriented fostering service
Foster carers are approved registered adults who look after children and young people who cannot live with their own birth families. All kinds of people can become foster carers; they are as unique and diverse as the children and young people they care for. Could you become a foster carer?
Making a positive difference
We care passionately about achieving the best possible outcomes for the children and young people in our care. Our goal is for every child to either return home successfully, experience a permanent placement and/or achieve independent living - whichever is most appropriate. Learn more about our children and young people.
Evidence-based fostering practice
Kasper has a strong commitment to evidence-based and partnership working. We are a preferred supplier to a number of Local Authorities, and work with multiple agencies to deliver a wraparound approach that supports foster carers strategically and practically. Read more about our foster care practice.
Achieving positive outcomes
The entire team - Directors, Foster Carers, Social Workers, Support Teams and Panel Members - is committed to providing long term care and support for children and young people. This quality of service can only be provided by having a dedicated, dynamic and skilled fostering workforce who are well supported and expertly trained. Learn more about our people.

What fostered children say about us...“Everyone at Kasper is valued, know each other and the organisation is a reflection of everyone involved. I believe that every single child in care should be provided with the same quality of foster care that I experienced at Kasper Fostering with their individual needs and rights promoted without compromise.” Tom (aged 29, former foster child)
