benefits of fostering direct

All children who need a foster carer are the responsibility of the Local Authority. By fostering direct with us, you’ll be a key part of a team with a depth of insight and knowledge about the child’s journey, local services and schools that is invaluable to foster carers.

As a not-for-profit organisation, all our funding goes directly into the fostering service we provide. We work as one big team to help build better futures for local children living in our community by helping them stay local, when it’s right for them, and creating better outcomes for them.

We are friendly, familiar and understand the realities of life in your community. We have local knowledge of both our children and our foster carers, and are available whenever you need us. You will always be supported.
