Why foster with The Fostering Company

If you live in the North East of England, and are considering a career as a foster carer, The Fostering Company can guide you every step of the way on your journey.

The support, resources and training we offer go above and beyond what local authorities and many other fostering agencies are able to offer.

Here are a few unique things that set The Fostering Company apart.

24/7 support

Around the clock support from our dedicated team. We’re a close knit team, and no matter who you speak to, day or night, we will know you and the circumstances of your foster family.

Free specialist training

We have an ongoing series of training courses for you to specialise in different areas of fostering and get the help and support you need to provide the best possible care to the children and young people in your home.

Competitive pay and allowances

As an independent provider, we are able to offer our foster carers competitive rates of pay. Find out more.

Local support groups

We run social events and support groups throughout the year so you can connect with other foster families in an informal and friendly setting.

Referral incentives

We know that word of mouth is a powerful tool, and encourage our foster carers to speak of their experience with us and encourage referrals, with a transfer bonus scheme for switching over to us.
