Children in Northern Ireland are seeking foster parents. We have opportunities for fostering in Belfast for experienced foster carers and also those who are new to fostering.
If you’re considering becoming a foster parent, choose a fostering agency with local teams to help you achieve your ambitions.
We are the largest independent fostering agency in the UK, with superb agency coverage across all areas – meaning you have the support of a team close to you.
One of the most established fostering agencies in Northern Ireland – known as Kindercare Fostering – we work with all five Trusts to place children and young people in homes where they can thrive.
As a foster carer for the National Fostering Group, you’ll have unparalleled access to professional support and excellent training in Belfast and across Northern Ireland.
On top of this, carers who are fostering in Belfast have a large and active peer network that includes several local support groups.
It is an independent fostering agency with quite a small team. They are so supportive. When our first little guy left, well, nothing prepares you for that. They were great, they would phone up to see how we were doing. They really care about us as people and how we are feeling.
Many children and young people are awaiting foster parents in Belfast and across Northern Ireland. National Fostering Group has local offices that support foster carers across Northern Ireland, including Lisburn, Derry, Bangor and Enniskillen.
