Fostering in Essex

  • Foster Parent Training - About Us

Join a Leading UK Fostering Agency in Essex

We’re By the Bridge, an independent fostering organisation. We find and train the best Foster Parents to really make a difference to a child and ensure young people in care get a better chance in life.


Originally founded by Foster Parents in 2002, By the Bridge is a specialist fostering organisation with offices situated at carefully selected locations across the UK. 


For over 15+ years we have been providing a unique and leading therapeutic fostering approach. The teams at By the Bridge are made up of brilliant people, Foster Parents and staff alike. Many of our staff team have fostered too, so we really know what it’s like.


By the Bridge Foster Parents come from all walks of life and bring a wide range of experience to caring for children from all types of backgrounds. We are currently looking for new foster parents who live in Essex.


Children and young people are at the very heart of everything that we do, but we never forget that Foster Parents must be well cared for and valued by us too, if they are to do their very best work.
