At Supported Fostering Services we believe children have the right to the best possible start in life. They don’t all get this, and it’s our job to help them as much as we can to reach their full potential.
As a registered fostering charity we offer high levels of support to foster carers, which enable them to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people.
Working together and supporting carers as part of the professional team gives each child the best start in life.
How to Get More Information
By completing our initial enquiry form, we’ll send you an information pack about fostering with SFS. This will hopefully answer many of the most frequently asked questions foster carers have. We’d also be happy to chat on the phone (029 2046 0004), or visit people to talk more about the challenges and rewards of fostering.
We often hold a number of open days and fostering information sessions, which you’re welcome to attend. Keep up to date with our news & events page for more information.
Ready to Apply?
For those people who are ready to apply to foster, our online application form is the fastest way to start the fostering process. On receipt, we’ll contact you within 24 hours to move things along.
Ready to Transfer?
Foster carers also regularly transfer to us from local authorities, or other fostering organisations. They normally say they come for two reasons.
Firstly, they like the fact that we’re a registered fostering charity, which means resources are reinvested in services for children, carers and their families. This is very different to profit making organisations who happen to see fostering as a business opportunity.
Secondly, carers like the high level of support we offer them:
- 24/7 qualified social worker on hand
- Access to therapy and education support without delay, which can make a big difference.
We’re a medium size organisation; small enough to offer a personal service, but large enough to have the backup when it’s needed.
