Types Of Fostering

There are many different types of fostering, and we need foster parents who can meet the diverse needs of children. Some children might require foster care for a few nights, while others seek a lasting family.

Transferring To A New Fostering Agency

We know that fostering can be rewarding yet challenging. That's why you deserve an agency which will support you so that you can concentrate on making a huge difference to the lives of children.

Fostering in England with A Family Approach

At Family Fostering Partners, we’re proud to be a family run agency. Our family focused approach towards fostering in England underpins everything that we do. We are experts in the recruitment and training of foster parents, and we are committed to nurturing and expanding our community of foster carers across England. As an agency we work closely with local authorities across England to match our foster parents with children who need safe and loving foster families.

To help meet the needs of fostering in England, we offer a wide range of different forms of foster care, including short term fostering, respite care, long term fostering, and more specialist parent and child foster care.

Support for Foster Care in England

Deciding to begin on the journey of fostering a child in the UK is a significant step. However, at Family Fostering Partners we will be there to support you throughout. As an agency, we will provide you with all the necessary information and guidance to ensure that you can succeed and thrive as a foster parent. 

Our website is full of detailed information about fostering in England, from understanding the foster care assessment process to highlighting  the continuous training that we provide to all of our foster carers, and navigating frequently asked questions. 

That said, should you have any queries not addressed on our website, we have a fostering live chat feature which allows you to talk directly with a member of our team (even outside of office working hours!). This is just a small representation of the extra steps we are committed to taking to support all of those we are considering fostering a child in the UK.

Dispelling Myths about Fostering a Child in the UK

There are numerous myths surrounding who can become foster parents in England. Every child that we help care for is unique, that’s why at Family Fostering Partners we are dedicated to championing diversity; only by having a diverse family of foster carers can we hope to find the best possible match between a child and their new foster family. 

Contrary to common beliefs, fostering is not limited to straight married homeowners. Whether you’re single, identify as LGBTQ+, or rent your home, you can foster as long as you offer a secure, loving environment and have a spare bedroom for a child. Our priority is the wellbeing of the children and young people we support, aiming to place them in homes where they can thrive and achieve their fullest potential.

Some of the most common questions about fostering that we receive are those around financial remuneration. At Family Fostering Partners, we ensure our foster carers in England are well-compensated for their invaluable work through a competitive fostering allowance.

In addition to the fostering allowance, every foster parent with us at Family Fostering Partners will receive free membership of an amazing organisation called Foster Talk, who offer even more advice, guidance, and even offers and savings.
