Kent fostering agency
Since opening our doors in 1997, our Rainham fostering centre has built a strong reputation for excellent quality foster care and achieving extraordinary outcomes for young people in care. Alongside our Whitstable and Teynham centres, we find, train and support foster carers across Kent and Medway.
As an organisation, we have over 30 years’ experience in caring for children and young people with complex needs and have developed a therapeutic approach that many other independent fostering agencies have since adopted.
Over the years, we’ve developed a series of in-house support services and expertise that foster carers and young people can lean on whenever they need it. These services include an extensive training programme for therapeutic foster care, 24/7 helpline with a qualified social worker, regular supervision and mentoring, as well as therapy and educational support for children.
In addition to our unrivalled support, our foster parents are recognised as fellow practitioners and receive a generous fostering allowance that rewards them for their specialist skills, experience and commitment to the children in their care. As an ISP foster carer, you’ll receive between £440 and £580 per week, depending on your level of experience and training – plus additional allowances and rewards.
We pride ourselves in providing our foster parents with an enjoyable and rewarding experience, where they feel supported, listened to and valued, and achieve this by surrounding them with a multidisciplinary team of social workers, therapists, education professionals and fostering advisors, many with direct experience of fostering too.
