I have worked for a number of fostering agencies over 15 years and in my experience, Fostering People are focused on building families for life. Success is not just measured by inspection results but by family stability and support. We are an inclusive region and our service is tailored to a child’s individual needs. We listen to children and young people because they matter to us.
We are in a fortunate position having a number of experienced social workers with a wealth of knowledge and longevity of service. We are committed to supporting foster parents in caring for vulnerable children and young people through their fostering journey.
