Being a foster parent can be a hugely rewarding experience. But it’s vital to get support from a fostering agency that truly cares.

AFA Fostering, also known as Anglia Fostering Agency, is an independent fostering agency. We exist to provide local, high quality care placements to children and young people in Norfolk, Suffolk, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and the West Midlands.

We provide genuine 24 hour a day, 7 day a week direct support from experienced, dedicated and qualified staff. You will receive high quality training and a highly competitive fostering allowance. Most importantly, you will be making a huge difference to a child’s life.

AFA are proud to be rated by Ofsted as Good. Our inspection also highlighted that we are Outstanding in the area of Helping and Protecting Children.

What makes AFA Fostering different?

AFA was formed by two social work professionals. With over 75 years’ social work and fostering management experience between them, they have a thorough understanding of what children and young people need to thrive.

A growing number of foster agencies are owned by private equity companies with the sole aim of making money. That’s not us. Our mission is to provide quality care with integrity and respect. This ethos underpins all that we do.

What our carers say

Fostering in the Midlands, Norfolk and Suffolk

AFA Fostering works across Norfolk, Suffolk, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and the West Midlands.

These areas need dedicated, compassionate foster parents to take care of children with a range of needs. Many children in these regions have had difficult life experiences and need a chance to live in a stable home environment in which they can feel safe and flourish.

We have experienced teams in East Anglia and the Midlands to support our foster parents, their families and the children who need their care. If you live in these areas and would like to know more about fostering with us, please get in touch.
