Therapeutic Foster Care
True Fostering is an OFTSED rated good independent Therapeutic Fostering agency. We are a close knit agency with children and foster parents at the heart of what we do. True Fostering provides Therapeutic Parenting using the TRUE model. Sarah Naish, director of Inspire Training and founder of The National Association of Therapeutic Parents devised the model. The model provides a robust and highly skilled Therapeutic team to support children and Foster Parents. Here at True Fostering, we pride ourselves on the quality of care, the specialist training and the support we provide to our children and families. Fostering can be an amazing and rewarding journey and we are here to support you every step of the way.
The TRUE model recognises the impact fostering may have on Foster Parents and their families. We know how caring for a traumatised child can be challenging and intense. This increases the risk to individuals experiencing compassion fatigue. The team are trained in recognising the early signs, we work proactively to limit the impact and promote family stability.
Although our main office is based in the South West, we have teams in the East and West Midlands. Training and support groups are available within each of the localities. All our Foster Parents have memberships with The Fostering Network and The National Association of Therapeutic Parents. They have access to specialist training through the INSPIRE Training group who have direct and proven experience in changing the lives of children with developmental trauma.
One of our Foster Parents stated
”The agency truly has a family feel and all children, whether birth, adopted or fostered are given the same respect. I am really blessed to be part of a fantastic team”
