Private Fostering

Somebody Else's Child

Are you looking after somebody else's child? Or is somebody looking after your child? By law you must tell your local authority when a child is looked after for 28 days or more, even on some occasions by a relative.

Call 020 8464 3333 and ask for Referral and Assessment to tell the Local Authority about a private fostering arrangement.
