about fosterplus fostering agency

About us

Creating a sense of continuity

Fosterplus was founded in 1996, giving us over 25 years’ continuous experience as an independent fostering agency. We train and support foster carers across England and Scotland, in order to provide safe and loving homes for vulnerable children.

Every one of our local offices is rated 'Outstanding' or 'Good' by Ofsted, which reflects our dedication in providing positive outcomes to children and families. Continuity is important to us, and we look to create it in everything we do – most critically, for the children and young people we look after.

Many who enter our care have experienced a disrupted childhood and our aim is to break this cycle and provide more stability. We do this by carefully matching the right foster parents to the right children, and making sure we’re always on hand with support, guidance and help.

Our expertise helps ensure more successful placements – and that’s exactly the sort of continuity we want. This commitment is spelt out in our mission which is to ‘provide positive and stable family environments for the children and young people placed with our carers and ensure that, with the support of our carers, they can thrive emotionally and academically’.

To provide this continuity, we focus on connections.

Connecting you with the services and support you need

We connect our social workers, education and care professionals together, and make sure they’re always available. We connect our foster parents to regular supervision and ongoing training, as well as to a network of other local carers. And we enjoy strong connections with local authorities, who recognise our commitment to creating positive futures.

All of this creates a strong feeling of stability and support which encourages continuity and long-term development, helping foster parents and children and young people step forward with confidence.
