About North London

North London is a brilliant place to take care of foster children. With so many activities on your doorstep, you’re sure to find something to keep them entertained and to help you build your relationship with them. You can go and kick a ball around in Clissold Park or one of the many other beautiful parks, take them bowling at Rowans Ten Pin Bowl or for the younger children you could take them to play at Kidzmania or to meet the animals on Freightliners Farm.

Whatever you decide to do with your foster child, you’re sure to learn a lot from them and thoroughly enjoy caring for them and providing them with a stable and secure way of life.
