As the largest independent fostering agency in the UK, we have excellent resources to support and train you. If you’re keen to be challenged and want help to be the best you can be, this is what’s in store.
Because children are the heart of everything we do, we provide our foster carers with everything they need in which to create a comfortable and nurturing home environment for them.
As a National Fostering Group carer, you’re supported round-the-clock by local, professionally qualified teams who are with you every step of the way. The teams at our local agencies are experienced and work with you to provide a high quality of care.
You’ll find yourself within the supportive network of an extended carer family too – with access to our buddy system, carer mentors, peer support groups, online groups and so much more.
Additionally, as a National Fostering Group foster carer, you’ll become a member of The Fostering Network, an independent organisation that provides professional support, legal advice and more.
The questions that I was asked in my panel interview I already knew the answers to because of the Skills to Foster training.
First rate training is available to all our foster carers, both mandatory and optional. We believe all foster carers come to us with a unique set of abilities, skills and talent. You can add new perspectives to your experience and develop new skills with our extensive range of free and flexible courses.
