Do you live in north London and want to foster a Muslim child?

Muslim children are best placed with families who can support them in an environment which matches their cultural identity and religious beliefs. We are therefore reaching out to the Muslim community to ask you to come forward and see if you can foster a child.

There are currently more Muslim children in care than there are Muslim foster families to place them with.

We all know that stability and a sense of identity and belonging are important for children. That is why, when children are unable to live with their birth family and come into the care of a local authority, we try and match them to a foster family that can support them in these areas. 

We are looking for new families to join our network of experienced foster carers and help us to support the wide range of Muslim children who come into care each year.

Please read our leaflet about fostering in the Muslim community here.

Benefits and support:

  • 24 hour support, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
  • A wide range of training to help you in your role
  • Competitive allowances and fees to cover your expenses
  • A range of support groups and social events so that you can get to know other carers.


Eligibility criteria:

  • Spare bedroom for your foster child
  • Some experience of children either through work or home.
  • The time, love and patience needed to care for a child.
  • Open to fostering children from different backgrounds.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions section to find out more about our recruitment criteria.
