Our outcomes for children and young people are outstanding and children make exceptional progress to develop a positive self-view.

This service

We place disabled children and young people with moderate, severe and complex physical and learning impairments, also known as special needs, as well as children with healthcare needs, with supportive and enriching foster families.

We have a proven record of finding disabled children and young people successful, stable placements.

We offer

  • Short-term placements
  • Long-term placements
  • Shared care – a child lives with a foster carer part-time, and with family or other carers for the rest of their time
  • Bridging placement – a child lives with a foster family while a longer-term solution is found
  • Emergency placement – a day to a few weeks
  • Short breaks (respite care) – a weekend or a few days

Our foster carers receive continuous training, regular supervision and our in-depth knowledge of specialist equipment and support networks.

We always want to hear from

  • Local authorities needing to place disabled children and young people with foster families
  • People who are considering becoming a foster carer for disabled children or young people

Please contact us to find out more.
