We are a highly specialist therapeutic agency set up by a passionate team of experts in fostering, social work and adoption. OFTSED reported, ‘The registered manager is a compassionate, knowledgeable and hard-working leader, who expects staff and foster parents to deliver high standards of care to children’.
Our offices are based in Tewkesbury, although we work across the Midlands and South West. We have 3 fostering pods offering local support and training to foster families within these localities. We provide specialist services to many local authorities across England, working in close partnership to identify and meet the needs of their children, and provide therapeutic and secure families. Offering long term, short term and respite care.
We are a small, close-knit agency with our children and young people at the heart of what we do.
Our OFSTED report noted ‘The quality of relationships between agency staff, foster parents, birth families and external professionals is good’. We seek to maintain the professional and personal relationships we have created by staying a small organisation. We pride ourselves on the high quality foster families provided to our children and young people, and with the unique and robust support team around each family.
