We know how challenging, albeit hugely rewarding, Fostering can be so we ensure that our Carers are supported by a team of dedicated Supervising Social Workers (with protected caseloads, to guarantee you all the time you need with us).

Next Step is a family-feel agency with many of our staff and Managers having been Foster Carers themselves; truly understanding the challenges and motivations that drive Fostering families.

In addition to the round the clock dedicated support, our Carers receive in-house counselling services as well as ongoing professional training & career development; access to ‘bridging-payments’ to keep things ticking over at home in between placements; and a ‘recommend a friend’ referral scheme.

If you are an experienced Carer – or are thinking of returning to Fostering – and would like to find out more about our support package and ‘covid-safe’ transfer process:
