Independent Stonehouse
Fostering Agency

Based in Stonehouse, we support foster parents and children living across Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Wiltshire. Together with our foster families, we’re making an extraordinary difference to children in foster care.

Sadly, more children are living in care each year and we’re looking to find more kind-hearted and passionate individuals to join our team.

As a Fosterplus foster parent, you’ll benefit from an excellent training and support package, including monthly supervision with your dedicated social worker, educational support for children, regular support groups and a first-class training programme delivered by our in-house team of experts.

You’ll also have access to a 24/7 helpline with a qualified social worker – professional advice is always at your fingertips.

If you’re ready to take your first step into fostering, chat to our friendly advisers today.

Proud of the outcomes we achieve

All our offices are rated by Ofsted as 'Outstanding' or 'Good', reflecting our passion in providing the best possible outcomes for children and families. We achieve successful, stable foster care placements through building strong relationships with our foster families; by understanding their strengths, vulnerabilities, family dynamics and training and support requirements, we’re able to carefully match their skillset with the needs of a child.

Successful outcomes always start with the quality of the matching – and we take extra care when placing a child with a family to ensure a positive and rewarding experience for all.

While Irene admits that it hasn't always been easy, she says that fostering has brought her family so many happy memories and can't believe the positive influence it's had on her own daughter.
