FREE FOSTERING GUIDE

WHO ARE NEXT STEP FOSTERING?

We are a family-run independent fostering agency that provides a specialist fostering service to our Local Authorities. We find and train the highest calibre of foster carers and (along with our sister companies Ryancare and Safehouses) we carefully match them with children across Essex, Kent, London, Norfolk and the South East of England.

Finding the best foster carer(s) and home(s) for our looked after children is at the heart of everything that we do. We want to give our young people stability and a more positive future and it is our dedicated foster carers that make the difference.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

We pride ourselves on the quality support we provide to our foster carers and the well being of the children under our care. We have our own team of highly qualified and experienced Foster Carers, Social Workers, Therapists, Trainers and support staff who work in partnership with the Local Authority to ensure that the needs of the children and our carers are met to the highest of standards.

We have a successful track record of providing high quality foster families to all our children; our foster carers are committed to providing young people with a safe, nurturing family; and we always go the extra mile to ensure that our carers receive the best training and support possible. As a result we are one of the most respected agencies in the sector and have a very strong reputation with OFSTED.
