Our Thetford office is part of Compass Fostering East, one of the leading independent fostering agencies in Norfolk. We know how hard our foster parents work and we value the amazing commitment they are making when they become a foster carer.
There is a shortage of foster carers in England. That’s why we have an office in Norfolk, with Supervising Social Workers throughout the county to support our carers. Key areas for us are Norwich, King’s Lynn, Attleborough, Halt, Wattot, Hemsby, Fakenham, Wroxham, Diss, Great Yarmouth, Cromer, Thetford and Swaffham.
If you’re interested in fostering in Norfolk, or the East of England, Compass Fostering Felsted is here to help. We’re open 9-5 Monday to Friday. If you need to speak to somebody, we have an out of hours service available at all times.

Norfolk fostering allowance
We recognise that looking after a child or young person has financial implications which is why as a foster carer you are paid a weekly fostering allowance which is made up of a professional fee for yourself and also a day to day living allowance for the child. There are a number of different factors which contribute to how much foster carers are paid per week. Compass average payments of £370 for every child per week living in your home. You can learn more about fostering fees here.
Training & Support
We aim to make continuous improvements for the children and young people we support all over the UK, along with our passionate foster carers. We run regular training and support groups for foster carers, and those who would like to learn more, several venues across Norfolk.
