Why choose Fostering People?

At Fostering People, we do one thing and we do it exceptionally well – fostering.

We focus all our energy on helping people to become excellent foster carers and supporting them to make a real difference to children’s lives.

It’s why we’re one of only six independent agencies in the UK to be rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted across all categories.

Proud to be local

We really do work in and around the communities our carers live in. So when we promise reliable, local support; we mean it.

You won’t have to travel to an office every time you want to see your social worker or speak to a member of staff – they’ll visit you at home. The same goes for training and support groups. We hold them in community venues close to our carers’ home, making it easy for you to get to know fellow carers and build a strong support network.

You won’t have to get used to having conversations with an answerphone message either. You’ll receive a personal response and a member of our team will always be ready to chat. It’s just one of the reasons why 99% of our carers say they find our staff helpful and supportive.

Excellent support

We wouldn’t expect you to foster alone. That’s why we provide all our carers with a comprehensive package of training and support – available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We’re passionate about the care we provide. It’s why we created our Step by Step Promise. This sets out the support you can expect to receive when you become a foster carer with us, starting on the day you pick up the phone to talk to our team.

So it’s no surprise our carers truly value our services, with 98% saying they’re happy with the support we provide.

But don’t just take our word for it. See what our carers have to say about fostering with us.
