We focus on the quality of foster care provision to achieve our aim of building incredible futures for vulnerable children and young people.
National Fostering Group is committed to building incredible futures for vulnerable children and young people in the UK by empowering them to be happy and make their way in the world.
We achieve this by providing foster parents with excellent skills and genuine commitment, who can give children in need a safe, supportive and nurturing environment where they can thrive and be happy.
National Fostering Group believes in providing support that allow our carers to focus on the well-being and care of their foster child. To this end, we offer our carers:
The Mockingbird Family Model was developed by The Mockingbird Society in America in 2004. National Fostering Group applies its therapeutic method to support our foster carers support a child or young person in their care.
Mockingbird is a unique fostering wraparound service. It places an experienced carer in a position to support up to ten satellite fostering families and carers. This support comes in the form of specialist training, confidential therapy sessions, emergency respite, and mentoring on a round-the-clock availability basis. It places importance on regular contact with birth families and maintains a close community feel using social events.
As part of the Outcomes First Group, the leading children’s care provider in the UK, National Fostering Group is committed to these pledges.
