What sets us apart?

What sets us apart is quite simple – Our foster carers!

We invest heavily in recruiting, assessing, training and supporting the very best people. Whether they be single, a couple or a family, we apply a rigorous assessment process to ensure our carers are prepared for fostering, and are able to provide the kind of home, nurturing and loving warmth that children and young people need to thrive.

Whether the carers working for us are new to fostering or highly experienced, they are at the centre of a dedicated team of professionals committed to transforming the lives of society’s most vulnerable children and young people. 

When the time is right, experienced carers are elevated to ‘Ambassador Foster Carer’ and play a pivotal role in recruiting, mentoring and nurturing new foster parents through the challenges they inevitably face. Ambassador Foster Carers are also involved in our Skills to Foster training and we ask them to be part of an internal assessment process designed to continually improve our service.

Our team of social workers, responsible individuals, Ambassador Foster Carers and experienced team provide 24/7 support to our foster parents and the children in our care. This level of support means that we make a difference to the lives of our foster carers by allowing them to foster in confidence.

We know our foster carers. We know their strengths. And as a result, we know what type of placement is right for them. It is this sort of commitment to matching that helps us achieve the best possible outcome for children whether it be for a day, week, month or many years.
