Ealing is a suburban district in west London and is a major metropolitan centre. Since 1965 it has been part of greater London and is now a major commercial and retail centre.
Most of Ealing falls under the W5 and W13 postcodes. Ealing is best known for it’s film studios and is also home to a range of bars, shops and restaurants. It has a number of parks, including Walpole Park, which hosts the Ealing Jazz Festival and Ealing Comedy Festival.
Other attractions include the PM Gallery and House, Pitshanger Park, Ealing Farmers Market, West Ealing Craft Market, and Questors Theatre, the largest community theatre in Europe.
But like many London districts, it is also home to a number of children and young people whose families are no longer able to look after them, so there is a great need for foster carers.
