What makes AFA Fostering different?

AFA Fostering agency was formed by two social work professionals. With over 75 years’ social work and fostering agency management experience between them, they have a thorough understanding of what children and young people need to thrive. A growing number of fostering agencies are owned by private equity companies with the 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 as a fostering agency.

What our foster parents say

“We’ve been blessed with having met some absolutely amazing children over the years; children that have been through so much and still get up every day no matter what has been thrown at them. They are just amazing, and it makes me quite emotional just thinking about them.”
