• Essex Fostering Event

Essex Fostering Information Evening 

We hold regular information evenings in Essex. The information evenings are essential information on By the Bridge and fostering. Please contact us for the next available date. 


The team that runs the events are friendly, knowledgeable and will share their fostering experiences and answer any questions that you have. They’ll also provide more information on topics such as: 

  • Why children need fostering and how our unique therapeutic approach makes a difference
  • How we match foster children to our Foster Parents
  • Fostering as a career – the great pay, benefits, allowances, promotion and tax advantages.  Also, what is expected of you as a Foster Parent
  • The local support and exceptional training you’ll receive as a professional Foster Parent
  • What makes us different to other fostering providers and why we are in high demand (over 1000 children are referred to us every month)

The Essex information evening is held in a convenient location:


Ivy Hill Hotel (Best Western), Margaretting, Chelmsford, Essex, CM4 0EH

Fostering in Essex


We are currently looking for Foster Parents in Chelmsford, Colchester, Southend-on-Sea, Braintree, Brentwood, Clacton, Romford, Basildon and Harlow. Also the surrounding towns and villages.


This is a growing region with a dedicated, hardworking team and many foster families who have been with By the Bridge since 2003.
