Interested in fostering in Northampton?

There’s a national shortage of foster carers available to care for some of our most vulnerable children and young people and we’re looking to find passionate and dedicated individuals who are interested in fostering in Northampton and Northamptonshire, including Kettering, Wellingborough, Daventry, Towcester and surrounding villages.

As the UK’s first independent fostering agency and founders of therapeutic foster care, we have over 30 years’ experience in training and developing professional foster carers, helping them to make an extraordinary difference.

Whether you’re new to fostering or looking to transfer, we’ll provide you with the specialist training and extensive 24/7 support that’ll help you become a true fostering professional.


Becoming a foster parent is one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do – you’re giving a child, who may not have had the best start in life, a chance to flourish with your love, care and understanding.

Plus, the process may not be as difficult as you think – we’ll aim to complete your fostering assessment within 4-6 months. However, we’ll always move at a pace that’s right for you.


As founders of therapeutic fostering, you'll be surrounded by a team of experts in fostering, therapy and education who are there to support you, whenever you need it.

If you are looking to change your fostering agency, the process to transfer fostering agencies may not be as difficult as you thought. As an experienced foster parents, we'll fast-track your assessment and aim to complete within 12 weeks.
