Why choose Family Care?

  • deliberately small

  • family owned

  • Therapeutic support

 

We are a family owned fostering agency that passionately cares about its foster carers. 

After being approved to foster, you will be allocated with your own supervising social worker and introduced to our regional fostering team.  This includes our support workers, adiministrators and placement officers, who you will soon know on a first name basis and you can contact at any time.

We use the Secure Base in our approach to delivering a first class fostering service, and you'll receive training on this from our in-house therapists.  They will be providing direct support to you when you have a placement.
