Types of fostering

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 carers 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 carers, 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.

Get in touch

If you would like to foster, we’d love to hear from you. Please complete our short enquiry form and we’ll be in touch to talk through your options.

This information will only be used to process your expression of interest within AFA as a potential foster carer and will not be shared with any 3rd party.

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.
