The Foster Care Agency is known for the excellent support offered to foster carers

Established in 2001, The Foster Care Agency has looked after children and young people from a diverse range of backgrounds. We offer the very best care to vulnerable children and young people by recruiting, training and supervising skilled foster carers to work as part of our friendly, child-focussed dynamic team.

At the Foster Care Agency you will be supported by your dedicated Supervising Social Worker, as well as 24 hour, 7 days a week support from the agency. Training is provided to you during your assessment process and throughout your fostering journey. We offer both face to face and online training in order for you to further develop your skills, knowledge and experience.

We hold various social events and support groups for our foster carers. You will be encouraged to develop a good network and meet with other carers in the agency. We look to ‘buddy’ our newly approved carers with our existing carers so that fostering experiences can be shared. We also hold consultations and fun days for everybody in your family and the children and young people that you foster.

Our Children and Young People’s group Consultation group (known as VOX) holds events regularly throughout the year that aim to entertain children and young people and make sure that their voices are heard. Vox events give both birth children and the children and young people in your care an opportunity to express their views in a variety of forums. We encourage them to speak about their experiences as well as socialise and most of all, enjoy having fun.

Fostering

Fostering is fun. You will have the opportunity to be a kid again and visit playgrounds, join in activities and be kept on your toes. More importantly you will witness amazing changes in a child's life that you never thought possible.
