About Quality Foster Care

Established in 2002, Quality Foster Care is an independent fostering provider. We are a friendly, local agency, with roots steeped in local family history.

The birth of Quality Foster Care

Quality Foster Care is a family founded organisation whose members have been directly involved in fostering for three decades.  It is our intention at QFC to provide a fostering service of the highest quality for looked after children and foster carers.

What we do

Our purpose is to train and support people who believe they can give a vulnerable young person the experience of family life. If you think you could offer a stable and safe environment for a child or young person in need, get in touch on 01268 795 597.

Quality Foster Care is proud to be part of Five Rivers Child Care, a social enterprise committed to transforming the lives of children and young people.


The Quality Foster Care office is based in South Benfleet. We have foster carers and social workers across South East Essex and East London.

Our foster carers live within a wide catchment area, including Benfleet, Wickford, Canvey Island, Southend-on-Sea, Chelmsford, Clacton, Basildon and all places in between.

Who we work with

We have long-standing relationships with a number of fostering organisations and associations and are regularly inspected by Ofsted.

Find out what our foster families have to say about working with Quality Foster Care.

"To anyone considering becoming a single foster carer, I strongly encourage you to check it out. I’ve been so lucky in that I have a wonderful support network around me; my friends and family have been incredible. The support workers at Quality Foster Care go above and beyond to let you know they are always there to call on; if you need any help, never be afraid to ask."


"There’s no greater feeling than knowing what is technically your job means you’re helping people at their most vulnerable find a place to grow into the people that they have the potential to become."
