Medway foster carers

Fostering

If you are one of our foster carers, there's plenty of advice and benefits available to you.

Reward scheme

We have a new and exclusive reward scheme for our foster carers with excellent local and national discounts. If you haven't received your card and log in, just get in touch with us on the usual number.

Refer a friend scheme

Open to all our foster carers. Refer a friend to become a foster carer with Medway Council and you'll receive £250 when they have been approved and had a placement of at least 12 weeks (not respite). You'll then receive a further £250 once they've had their annual review and a foster placement of at least 12 weeks (not respite).

There's no limit to how many people you refer, so what are you waiting for?

Fostering guide

We have a brand new, beautifully illustrated guide (PDF, 2.36mb) for children entering into our care. It covers a number of different topics, including who they might meet and what a foster carer is. Each child will be given their own personal copy to keep.

A big thank you to all the children and foster carers that helped us to put the guide together.
