About the Muslim Foster Network

Established in 2016, the Muslim Foster Network is a recruitment initiative that works alongside foster care services to issue guidance on supporting Muslim children.

We are committed to delivering support and direction through the early stages of the fostering journey, equipping foster carers with the education, information and resources to create a nurturing environment that allows Muslim children in care to develop their faith and identity.

What we do

Every 20 minutes another child comes into care needing a foster family. Due to the shortage of Muslim foster carers, most children need to be placed outside of their faith group.

Muslim Foster Network works with the local community, carers, national fostering agencies and local authorities to improve the chances of successful placements.


The Muslim Foster Network takes pride in our effective community awareness program which aims to raise awareness on the need for Muslim foster carers within the UK.

Events & Webinars
