Fostering in England

Thinking of fostering in England?

Whether you’re considering foster care for the first time or are already an experienced carer, we will provide you with all the support, training, and resources you need to have a hugely positive impact on a young person’s life. 

Family Fostering Partners is an independent fostering agency with a family-focused approach. We specialise in recruiting and training foster carers to provide homes for looked after children in England and Wales. We work with children of all ages with a variety of different care needs varying from short term to long term.

We pride ourselves on our high standards and are dedicated to safeguarding vulnerable children and young people, providing them with love, nurture, and support so that they can thrive. Our bottom line is that if a foster home is not good enough for our own children, then it is not good enough for the looked after children we are entrusted to love and support. This ethos means that we have established ourselves as an independent agency that provides a high-quality service with a truly local approach.

Established in 2015, Family Fostering Partners has grown up in Wales, earning a place as a Tier 1 agency on the current All Wales Fostering Framework. As we have grown alongside our successes, we have expanded our remit, to provide high quality care for children in England, as well as Wales!

Can you make a difference?

According to The Fostering Network, 56,160 children were living with foster families in England as of 31 March 2019. This is 72 per cent of the total 78,150 children who are in care and looked after away from home. As you can see, foster families are crucial in ensuring all children across England receive the care and love they need.

Every year, thousands of new foster families need to be found across England to meet the demand of children entering the care system and needing a safe home. Here, at Family Fostering Partners, we are driven by a genuine sense of duty to provide safe and loving homes to these children in desperate need of love and support. To do that, we need to recruit more caring and compassionate carers who are willing to open their hearts and lives to a child in care.

Can you help make a difference to a young person’s life and future? We believe you can foster!

Why choose us?

Family Fostering Partners is a local agency, founded by friends and family, that can deliver all of our services in the communities in which our foster parents live. This helps to make life simpler and ensures that money and resources are poured back into local towns and villages. We believe in a people-oriented approach, putting all of our resources into our amazing family of dedicated social workers, administrators, and of course, carers! We always strive to create an environment where our carers are empowered with training, support, and a team-based atmosphere where everyone is valued and respected. This creates successful and happy carers who love their role and who build strong and supportive relationships with their foster children at home.

Family Fostering Partners guarantee to provide all the training, support, and advice that foster parents need to provide the very best care for the children and young people in your care.
