Moving to NFA Midlands (part of National Fostering Group) has been the best thing we could have done. We'd been fostering already for a couple of years, and were pretty happy plodding along.

However, I had a good friend around the corner who fostered for NFA and couldn't rate them higher! She was so thrilled with her experience with them that, after almost a year of trying to persuade us to transfer, we finally made the swap!

We'll never look back! Support for foster carers is exceptional. Training informative and easily accessible, and all staff members are highly committed to their role!

Our foster carers are inspiring. The carers I work with never shy away from any situation and their dedication and passion to support these children is admirable.

It is vital I am there for our carers any time they need me, I will always be on the end of the phone or at their door, anything they need. We all work together as one big family and I very much enjoy getting to know our foster carers and supporting them throughout their fostering journey.

We have a great team here in the Midlands, we always have fun and support each other through thick or thin. I love where I work and can’t imagine doing anything different.
