Our regional foster training coordinator, Kim is ready to answer set you on the right path to becoming a foster carer in the local community
We’ll never tell you different: life as a foster carer can be challenging. That’s why NFA Fostering Family does everything in our ability to make things easier for every carer in our family. Here’s how:
From our 24/7 phoneline and regular training to monthly visits and weekly calls, you’re supported round-the-clock by local, professionally qualified and experienced social workers.
Our average fostering allowance lets our carers meet the needs of their foster child and also benefit from help with their own living costs.
Our tireless work has won both an Investors in People Gold award and the Leading Improvements for Looked After Children (LILAC) award.
We have been privileged to be a part of helping a young person to make a positive contribution to society as a whole. David is turning out to be a very well rounded young man, gaining in confidence and independence. We are very proud of him.
We run regular events and training sessions in Cornwall & Devon. You’re more than welcome to come along and chat with our carers to find out what it’s like to foster. See our locations below.
Joining our NFA Fostering Family immediately gives you access to a local and committed support team built around you to ensure you get a positive and reassuring foster care experience for both you and your foster child. You’ll foster a child safe in the knowledge that all of our fostering services have been rated either ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
