If you’re thinking about fostering, you may be weighing up whether to foster with your local authority or whether to choose an independent fostering agency.

So, 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 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.

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 ways of supporting our foster carers to minimise any challenges and support the placement.

If you aren’t sure about whether you should foster or which fostering agency to choose, please don’t hesitate to contact. If you fill out the form on this page we will send out your info pack, which is jammed full of information on starting your fostering journey.
