We’re still here to support your fostering journey.
The Coronavirus pandemic is causing widespread disruption throughout the country, and the world. Many of us are self-isolating, working from home, or supporting others who might be doing so.
With this comes uncertainty, both for today and the near-future. While we don’t know what the coming weeks and months will bring, we can reassure you that we’re here for you.
The situation is constantly changing, but here’s our status as of 23 March 2020.
Many Foster Carers around the country are 70+ and potentially vulnerable therefore the need for new Foster Carers is greater than ever to take care of the 60,000 children who are looked after in the UK.
As the largest independent fostering agency in the UK, our team covers the whole of the country – whether you live in Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, London, Northampton, Cornwall or anywhere in between, we are here for you. Our local teams are tight-knit groups of care professionals of a very high standard and experience. This means we’re well prepared to adapt to changing conditions, following government advice.
We’ve taken these steps to ensure we can continue to support your journey:
We welcome applications from people who are new to foster care, as well as experienced foster carers. If you’d like more information, or you’re ready to chat to us about the next steps, enquire today or call 0330 022 9135 for a chat.
