Fostering in Staffordshire

Many children need fostering in Staffordshire and across the Midlands. We welcome applications from people who are new to fostering, as well as transfers from experienced foster carers.

If you’re considering becoming a foster parent, choose a fostering agency with local teams who will be with you every step.

National Fostering Group is the largest independent fostering agency in the UK with superb agency coverage across all regions – meaning you have the support of a team close to you.

One of the most established fostering agencies in Staffordshire, we work with local authorities to place children and young people in homes where they can thrive.

As a foster carer with us, you’ll have unparalleled access to professional support and excellent free training in and around Staffordshire. We want you to thrive too, being the best you can be in your role as foster carer.

On top of this, carers who are fostering in Staffordshire have a large and active peer network that includes more than a dozen local support groups.

My husband and I have been with National Fostering Group for over 2 years. From the very start, we felt part of the group.

The referrals were great and we did get a lot of them - at times 4 or 5 a day. But working with the team, it helped us decide on the perfect child for our family.

Training courses run through out the year except school holidays and I have been to a lot and have learnt so much. It also gives you a chance to discuss any problems or help you may need.
