Why foster with us?

Life changing for a child and for yourself

We're a not-for-profit organisation and our sole motivation is to improve the lives of all Norfolk children in care.

We want to provide strong, stable and secure family environments for those children. This is so they can learn to achieve and contribute, give and earn respect and become valued members of the community.

Make a difference, choose to foster with us

Thousands of Norfolk children need foster care each year.

We're the team with the experience, understanding and commitment to find them carers and families across the county.

People who, with the right training and support, can make a real difference.

It can be a challenging journey, but we're with our carers at every stage:

  • We get to know our carers and children well, which means we can match the right child with the right family
  • We offer extensive training and experienced local support
  • Supervising social workers are familiar with each case, and any particular complications
  • We only use other fostering providers if we have no suitable in-house carers
  • 24-hour advice is always available

We've helped many children with troubled pasts enjoy futures free from fear. Our foster carers' patience, kindness and understanding has made this possible.

Who can foster?

We're looking for people from all walks of life to provide love and support to children
