why foster with fosterplus

Why choose
Fosterplus?

Providing a positive and stable environment

Today’s experiences have an impact on children and young people tomorrow. That’s why we think long-term - even for short-term placements - and are always committed to providing stability and continuity in all of our work.

We even actively encourage care to continue past the child's eighteenth birthday - if it's what the young person wants, of course. In Scotland, this is called 'Continuing Care' and ‘Staying Put’ in England. This means that with Fosterplus, you’ll be joining an organisation that’s thinking about the future – and that means yours too!

And there are even more reasons to join the Fosterplus family, which you can read about below...

Creating enjoyable and memorable fostering experiences...

A careful, considered approach

Everything we do is done with careful thought and consideration – from the initial matching of foster parents with children, through to the training we give. Our work is designed to keep foster families together and to provide stability and certainty.

Regular placement opportunities

We’ve been carefully matching foster parents with children for almost 25 years, during which we’ve built strong connections with many local authorities. This means you can rely on us to always find the right match when you're ready to welcome a child into your home.

Great outcomes for children

This is what fostering’s all about and we’re especially proud of our track-record – a real testament to our approach and commitment to continuity. This is reflected in our excellent Ofsted and Care Inspectorate reports, as well as the feedback we receive from local authorities.

Great support for the whole family

Our social workers have realistic caseloads and always find time to visit you regularly to maintain contact. We also make sure you’re always connected to the support you need 24/7/365. This ranges from regular support groups and direct access to Fosterplus management, through to an out of hours service.

Foster parent support

Expert matching and stable placements

The best outcomes for children are achieved by making the best matches. That’s why we take great care to connect children to the right foster parents, providing a platform for their growth and development in a secure and supportive home.

When we match foster parents with children, we involve everyone, sharing information openly and listening to everyone’s views.

Rewards and incentives

You can’t count the rewards of fostering in terms of money, but even so, the financial side of things is important – not just to cover the costs of caring for children (entertainment, pocket money, activities and holidays) but to recognise your hard work and professionalism.
