Why Choose Compass Fostering?

With us, you’ll be joining a team of professionals. We give carers the opportunity to build a career in fostering through training, mentoring, involvement in local support groups and recruiting other carers. Our aim is always to improve your fostering skills so that you are able to offer the best quality of care to the children and young people.

Compass Fostering is a leading independent fostering agency, so our foster carers receive extensive support, generous allowances and everything they need to help children and young people find emotional stability and security. We know that while fostering is often highly rewarding, it can also be challenging at times. This is why our our training and support package is created to look at new ways of supporting our foster carers to minimise any challenges and support the placement. You can learn more about the support Compass offer here.

We understand that the decision to become a foster parent can be a daunting one, and that sometimes you’ll want to talk to someone who has been through the process themselves. That’s why we offer new carers a ‘buddy’ – one of our experienced carers who know the ups, downs, ins and outs of the process. They offer support and advice from the minute you apply to the day you are approved.
