AFA Fostering also known as Anglia Fostering Agency is an independent fostering agency, formed and owned by two social work professionals who possess between them over 70 years social work and fostering management experience.
Our mission statement that AFA aims to provide quality care with integrity and respect, underpins all we do. We are not just an independent fostering agency but a fiercely independent one. We are aware of the growth in the number of fostering agencies who have been acquired by, or already owned by, private equity companies and then sold on at a profit. The Directors are clear that it has never been their intention to follow this route. AFA exists solely to provide the highest standards of care for children.
AFA provides local, high quality foster care placements to children and young people in East Anglia and the Midlands. AFA Fostering works with carers in Norfolk, Suffolk and across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.
AFA Fostering provides short term, long term and emergency placements in mainstream foster care as well as Intensive Placements, Therapeutic Placements and Parent and Child Placements. AFA staff are highly trained, qualified and experienced professionals. Foster Carers receive high quality support and training, foster children get “Outstanding Outcomes” (Ofsted 2015).
What we give – We provide genuine 24 hours a day, 7 days a week support from experienced, dedicated and qualified staff, high quality training and a comprehensive fostering allowance.
All this and the knowledge that you really are making a difference to a child’s life.
I want to Foster
We would like to hear from both experienced foster carers and caring, resilient people who are thinking about fostering for the first time from a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures, religions and social groups. We are particularly looking for carers for teenagers, sibling groups and parent and child placements, but whatever your skills and talents please contact us to help you achieve your potential to become a valued foster carer with all the rewards fostering can bring.
