The Fostering Network is an essential network for fostering, bringing together everyone who is involved in the lives of fostered children.
Over 40 years ago the organisation started around a kitchen table with a couple of foster carers who wanted to meet other foster carers to compare notes, share experiences and learn from each other. They received an overwhelming response from other foster carers and in 1974, the decision was taken to create a UK-wide organisation.
Today they are an organisation just short of 100 staff. They are recognised across the UK as being the leading voice in foster care; a vibrant membership organisation which provides a one-stop-shop for everyone involved in fostering; and a catalyst for change, working towards raising the outcomes for looked after children and the support for their foster carers.
Foster carers and young people are at the heart of what they do, they continually consult and share ideas with their membership to ensure they are investing time and resources in the most effective way possible.
The Fostering Network are passionate and value-driven, with a strong and supportive staff team all working together to offer the best possible customer service and support to the fostering community.
They provide a friendly working environment with a real sense of family right across their workforce.
