Next Step has been established in Essex for many years and so if you are interested in fostering in Essex then you need to contact our office at 1 Brentwood Road, Romford (01708 209227). This office houses a dedicated Manager and an experienced social work team backed up by administrative support. The office comprises a detached building with its own car park and is able to facilitate training for our foster carers.

We have links with all the local authorities covering this area to include Essex, Havering, Waltham Forest, Haringey, Redbridge to name but a few. As a consequence there are a huge number of referrals of children and unfortunately we are unable to meet the high level of demand for a warm loving home.

So we welcome contact from prospective foster carers if you think that fostering in Essex could be for you. There are numerous ways to make contact via the web site, phone or you could simply call in for a coffee!
