We are what it says; 'By Carers, For Carers'. We are a voluntary organisation made up of carers whose primary focus is to give support to one another. Whatever type of NCC carer of young people you are, we are here to support you; be it to follow up issues with NCC or just to meet up for a coffee and a chat. No-one understands a Carer like another Carer.
Every year, tens of thousands of children across the UK need foster carers while they can’t live with their own families. That means thousands of new foster carers are needed every year and you could be one of them.
It is a huge leap of faith but honestly, it's a fantastic thing to do. It's incredibly rewarding and, in turn, incredibly frustrating at times, but absolutely and utterly worth it.
We choose to work directly with the local authority rather than through a private agency. Click to find out why..
Foster carers come from all walks of life. The children and young people in our care need a stable and secure home environment and positive role models to guide and support them through a difficult time.
We want people to foster with us who believe they can make a difference and give a child or young person the life chances they deserve. It is a challenging but hugely rewarding role and we will support you every step of the way.
As the UK’s leading fostering charity, we are the essential network for fostering and we bring together everyone who is involved in the lives of fostered children. We support foster carers to transform children’s lives and we work with fostering services and the wider sector to develop and share best practice.
We work to ensure all fostered children and young people experience stable family life and we are passionate about the difference foster care makes. We champion fostering and seek to create vital change so that foster care is the very best it can be.
