Foster Care Fortnight 2017: What Our Carers Say About Us

To mark Foster Care Fortnight #FCF2017 , we would like to share with you some things that our carers have said that AFA offers

‘To approve and retain quality care givers and (provide) support from qualified, experienced, empathetic staff’

‘Independent fostering agencies work closely with local authorities to meet the heavy demands placed on care services, which could become overwhelming without this support. They (AFA) are also there to meet the needs of foster carers and help them to develop as professionals.’

‘To act as support to their carers, listen and support changes when needed’

‘[They offer] Training, support and guidance’

‘[They are] Professional and caring, inspirational and supportive’

‘Having the support available for me to access has been really helpful as I have had some challenging times this last year. Knowing (the Placement Manager) is at the end of the phone if I need her is very comforting.’
