We are a small independent fostering agency based in the North West of England, with a whole family approach, providing foster placements to children and young people across the North West. As a privately owned group, which is not part of a large national fostering agency, our focus is on the children and young people we support; we are not fixated on generating huge profits.
We take pride in ensuring that all our foster carers, children and young people receive the highest levels of support. This ensures that our carers feel welcome as part of the Therapeutic Fostering family and, as a result, healthy foster families are able to form and thrive. We are here to offer help, guidance and support at every stage of the fostering process, and following approval.
At Therapeutic Fostering, the interests of children and young people are at the heart of everything we do. By working closely with them, we aim to give children and young people access to stable foster carers with whom they can form strong, meaningful relationships which can ground them and prepare them for adult life.
Our fostering team is staffed by the registered fostering manager, support workers and highly experienced social workers - known as supervising social workers.
At Therapeutic Fostering, we wish to ensure that our foster carers are involved in all aspects of the development and improvement of the service. As such, we welcome all foster carers who would like to support us in any way.
Like the children and young people that they look after, foster carers are diverse and come from different ethnic backgrounds and communities from across society.
However, all foster carers have one thing in common – they care about children and young people and want to support them through the difficult and traumatic experiences they have encountered in their lives.
• Whatever their marital status
• Whatever their sexual orientation
• Whatever their religious, cultural or ethnic background
• If they have a disability or medical condition - provided it is monitored and does not impact on their ability to care for a child or young person
• If they have children of their own - provided their children are happy to accept a foster child or young person into their home.
• If they work – there are different types of foster care that enable foster carers to work and provide care to children and young people.
• If they are retired - provided that they are fit and well to support children and young people for a reasonable period into the future.
• If their own childhood was difficult - provided that they have been able to work through these difficulties and use their own experience in a positive way to support children and young people.
