Why do we need independent fostering agencies?
Unfortunately the number of children who become looked after far exceeds the levels which local authorities are able to support. This is why independent fostering agencies are required to offer extra support and facilities to foster families and children nationally. As a private agency, Compass Fostering works closely with local authorities to help to try and provide the best outcomes for children and young people in need.
Why 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, recruiting other carers and developing a host of skills that enhance your expertise as a foster carer.
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 we constantly look at new and innovative ways of supporting our carer families to minimise any challenges and support the placement.
