Foster Care Solutions are an established and progressive Organisation committed to delivering a high quality service to children, young people, foster carers and Local Authorities. We work in partnership with many Local Authorities to offer a wide range of fostering placements for children and young people to meet their individual needs, and are continually looking to recruit new foster carers from varied backgrounds and life experiences. Our foster carers are a valued and respected part of the 'team around the child' and are fully supported by a professional and dedicated staff group. Our goal is to ensure that all children are supported to develop the skills and abilities to progress and achieve their potential. Fostering can be a challenging task but also one of the most rewarding. If you feel that you could make a difference to the life of a vulnerable child or young person by providing a safe and caring environment and would like to discuss this further, please contact us.

Sheryl, Foster Carer since 2009 on 19 March 2014
"...[My FCS carer] helps me make the right decisions, and guides me in the right path. If I did not have her in my life I wouldn't be the way I am today, this household is a loving stable setting for any family, and I am glad my daughter is part of it... [My carer] is good at helping me when I struggle, giving me support, and just being a good Mam... I have learnt that a family is about love, caring, and guidance, also learning about how to look after myself and after a home and how to make sure my daughter has a good upbringing... I think she is a wonderful carer and she looks after her kids very well, puts all her heart and devotion into making them become good kids, teach them right from wrong, and show them the way a real loving family should go on. She helps you understand that life is about what you make it and that you can come from the most unfortunate of families but come back bouncing..."
