Why foster with Family Care?

We are a family-owned organisation focussed on improving the lives of the children and young people we care for.  

By following therapeutic approaches underpinned by the Secure Base model and providing full training, we support our foster carers to deliver therapeutically informed care with confidence.

Introductory guide to fostering

If you are thinking about becoming a foster carer, this guide is for you…

“I would totally recommend Family Care. The important thing for us was the support. If a situation arose that I didn’t feel I was able to deal with, I knew I could ring at 5 o’clock tea time or 3 o’clock in the morning and there was somebody on the end of the phone…The clue is in the name, Family.”

Jen, Fostering since 2013
