Help Me Grow Fostering (HMG Fostering) was founded in 2013 and is based in Anerley, South London. HMG is regulated by Ofsted and was first inspected in 2015, receiving a rating of ‘Good’ in all areas which we have subsequently maintained after being inspected again in June 2018.
We passionately believe in working with our Foster Carers to provide high-quality fostering placements so children and young people looked-after can enjoy a positive experience of family life. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a service to our community of Foster Carers who receive in-depth training on a regular basis.
Our office has a full complement of qualified staff to give local support to Foster Carers. This includes regular supervision with social workers who live locally, alongside local training and local Foster Carer support groups. In a nutshell, there is always somebody close-by and available to support our Foster Carers. We look forward to hearing from potential Foster Carers who share our passion in our surrounding areas including, but not limited to: Anerley, Croydon, Lambeth, Dulwich, Gravesend, Mitcham, Greenwich, Bromley, Lewisham, Medway and the top end of Kent.
Meet Tracey, our Director of Operations
My job is improving the lives of children and young people in foster care and making HMG a great place to work through the capabilities, talent and behaviour that our brilliant staff bring to our fostering agency. I also look after the systems; processes and the tools staff use as part of their roles – covering both the operation and social work.
I decided at a very young age I wanted to be a social worker and I am very proud to be called the Director of Operations at Help Me Grow Fostering.
“Work is so much more enjoyable when you feel that you’re making a difference.”Tracey Smith-Robinson, Director of Operations
