Help us and become a foster carer
Have you ever thought about fostering? Well now is the time to pick up the phone and call our recruitment team. Hertfordshire County Council urgently needs more foster carers to help provide loving, safe and stable homes for local children and teenagers.
How can I help?
If we can keep more children local to Hertfordshire then they can attend the same school, see their same friends and get the support and guidance they deserve, but in order to do this WE NEED YOU.
There are a number of ways to get in touch with us:

Hertfordshire’s Local Offer, has been revamped and is now LIVE!
There are over 25,500 young people in Hertfordshire with a special educational need or disability (SEND). Only one fifth of those children register for extra support through an educational, health and care plan (formerly a statement) because of an exceptional need.
Where are the other 20,000+ going for support?
The Local Offer was introduced by the government to help improve the quality of information about what local services and support is available. Whether it’s help to find a support group, information about how to apply for an assessment, what the pathway to adulthood entails or simply as a starting point for more detail on a child or young person’s condition, Hertfordshire’s Local Offer is the place to look.
The new Local Offer is simple and easy to navigate and if you can’t find what you’re looking for, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to find it for you.
