About Us

FosterPlus was founded in 1996, giving us 25 years’ continuous experience as an independent fostering agency. 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’.
