Here at Family Placement we are a medium sized fostering agency large enough to be able to provide our foster carers with not only a full range of training courses from your mandatory First Aid courses to additional Makaton training enabling us to deliver the best possible care for our young people. We are also small enough to be able to deliver personalised local support around the clock, and host events so we can maintain a hands-on approach.
As an established agency, starting out in 2001, we have consistently provided vulnerable children and young people with safe and comfortable places to live. Always trying to think of new ways to improve their quality of life and provide them with the tools they need to succeed, from Emergency ‘Go Bags’ to Sensory bags. We have also empowered fantastic foster carer role models, who have been able to guide each child to a brighter future.
Our services have been consistently rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED, which is further underlined in our feedback from foster carers and children in our care who tell us “We would never leave fp.c – the support and dedication they have shown us is just invaluable.”
You will really feel part of our fostering family, from our Carer Recruitment officer introducing you to the application process, to our placement team helping build your profile and finding you perfect matches. We are proud all our staff are personally involved in every part of your journey ensuring there is always a friendly face and someone available to help when needed.
