A circle of support

Working with children and young people with complex needs, we surround them and their foster parents with a strong and highly trained team to make sure they’re fully supported at every step.

Offering friendly and non-judgemental support, we help them understand and change behaviours, giving everyone the opportunity to grow from strength to strength.

Professional development opportunities

Our aim is to help our foster parents become as knowledgeable as possible because that improves the experiences of the children and young people in their care.

As well as ongoing specialist courses, such as Autism Awareness, Theraplay and Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, there's also an opportunity to gain professional qualifications, including an NVQ3 or QCF level 3 in Health & Social Care.

Great allowance & rewards

We offer a competitive weekly allowance, around £500 per child, to cover the cost of the child as well as provide you with a professional fee for all your hard work and dedication.

We also pay additional allowances to go towards holidays, summer activities and school uniform and you'll have access to our rewards platform, where you can find hundreds of discounts for family days out, shops, restaurants and more.
