Can anyone offer pros and cons of going with either local authority or private fostering agency?
Our aim is to provide you with the best guide in finding the right fostering organisation for you and your family.
The process of deciding to become a foster carer can be a daunting task. From introduction to the Local Authority/Independent Fostering Agency to completion of Form F, to being approved or not approved can be intimidating and frightening. Even with years of experience as foster carers we often feel we are not being treated as professionals and our voices are unheard. Our mission is to offer a platform for foster carers to be heard.
Foster carers provide a review of their fostering experience and rate their agency. We believe in freedom of speech, however, we will not accept inappropriate language.
With so many Foster Care providers how do you decide whether to foster for an Independent FA or Local Authority? Search our UK wide directory to find the ‘right’ one.
