Who we are

Brighter Fostering has qualified, and experienced social workers who will help deliver an outstanding local service to foster carers and children.

We are dedicated to identifying, recruiting and approving people who want to become foster carers. We will support you through the whole application process and it does not stop there.

Brighter Fostering staff will continue to ensure your development does not stop up to your approval, we want to support and supervise you as approved foster carers to ensure you become valuable contributors to the regional fostering challenges particularly when there is a shortage of foster carers to take in vulnerable looked after children who need your support.

We are intending to recruit the best families who have the potential to provide care, they have a good practical skill set and to make a practical difference to the lives of young vulnerable people
