Fostering and adoptionLast Updated 23/01/2020
Westminster City Council shares its fostering and adoption service with the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, devoting more resources to helping find families for the children who need them.
If you have been looking after a young person under 16 who isn’t a close relative for 28 days or more you could be in a private fostering arrangement. If you think you are in a private fostering arrangement you must tell us. By telling us you are looking after someone else’s child we can then provide support and advice to you, the child or young person and their parents.
