Fostering in Northamptonshire with Compass

Whether you’re new to fostering or an experienced carer, we’ll provide you with all the support and training you will require to help change a young person’s life.

We are actively recruiting foster carers in the Northamptonshire area, particularly in Corby, Northampton, Daventry, Fawsley, Great Oakley, Gretton, Kettering, Ringstead, Rothwell, Silverstone, Wellingborough, Bingham, Costock, Collingham and Hickling. We have had a fostering presence in the region for over a decade and have an established foster carer base in Northampton, Wellingborough, Corby and Kettering and across the county. Our offices are situated in Loughborough and we have social workers providing support for foster carers throughout Northants.

We understand that the decision to become a foster carer 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 prospective carers a ‘buddy’ – one of our experienced carers who knows the ups, downs, ins and outs of the process and who can offer support and advice from the minute you apply to the day you are approved. So whether you’re just wanting to find out more or already made an application, we have someone you can talk to.
