Could you foster a local child?

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 is an independent fostering agency, established in 2010. We provide local, high quality care placements to children and young people across the Midlands and East Anglia.

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 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.

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 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.

What our carers 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.”

Fostering across the Midlands and the
East of England

AFA Fostering works across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire 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.
