Recognising worth and unlocking potential

We believe the best way of supporting our foster carers in the valuable role they do is by providing them with a personalised, bespoke service where support is tailored to their individual needs and circumstances.

We’re committed to remaining a small, independent agency where every individual is known to the team so that we can provide an exclusive family feel to all our foster families and the children in their care.

Supporting our Foster Carers 100%

To achieve our aim of providing continuous unrivaled support for all our Foster Carers, we ensure that our supervising Social Workers support a maximum of 8 families at one time.  Check out the benefits all of our Foster Carers have unlimited access to.

Financial Support

We regard each and every one of our foster carers as fellow professionals and ensure that they receive a professional fee and full financial support. We also ensure that the financial fee acknowledges each foster carer’s length of service as well as their expertise by operating a tiered fee structure. We hope that our objective matches our foster carer’s aspiration to move to the top tier by accessing training, ongoing support and experiential learning and development.

Family Fostering Values

Consistently good...

The Supervising Social Worker, Tracy Price, excels in her role. In regards to the Agency, ‘Don’t change much!’  Being consistently good over a long period, inevitably results in continuing small improvements”

One of my favourite agencies...

A Supervising Social Worker always attends a review.  They are sensitive and knowledgeable about all aspects of substitute care and always able to provide practical support to the placement. Family Fostering is one of my favourite agencies.  If all of my children could have the high standard of care and support that these young people receive I would be very happy!

Welcoming, helpful and supportive...

Moving to Family fostering has been the best decision we could have made. The service they provide is excellent and there is nothing more we could wish or hope for.  Family fostering have welcomed us as part of their family. The support we receive is excellent. The workshops, training and support groups are great and informative. The team behind family fostering are always welcoming, helpful and supportive.  Thank you family fostering for having us as part of your family

Extremely satisfied with the service...

There has been an excellent line of communication and working together with the Agency (especially Teresa), sharing information, being supportive and engaging with the process. I have no concerns over the capacity of knowledge/understanding and general care of both the Agency and the Carers and am extremely satisfied with the service offered by Family Fostering. Any suggestions; Get more carers in Surrey/London.

Communication has been fantastic

The Agency has been wonderful, I have never had to worry about our young person. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. I believe the support offered to the foster carers has been excellent.  I am very satisfied with the Agency and only wish that all children in Foster Care were provided with the same level of support.

Absolute diamond....

Our Supervising Social Worker has been an absolute diamond and always makes me feel I’m a great person doing a great job.
