asphaleia fostering agency seeks to make a positive difference to the lives of children in the UK through excellent foster care services.

Fostering is a challenging career path to take, but one that is filled with plenty of rewards. These can include anything from seeing a child positively reunited with their family to watching a child succeed at school to being in a position to offer a home to a brother and sister when no one else could and who may otherwise have been separated…and there are so many more.

We are looking to recruit foster carers of all abilities and experience, to foster children aged 0-18 years, as well as specialist placements such as parent and babies and children with disabilities. We have specialist knowledge of asylum seeking children and welcome enquiries for these placements also.

We offer a highly competitive package to all foster carers including:

  • Comprehensive training programme
  • Highly skilled staff to support carers
  • 24/7 phone line
  • A wealth of experience working with vulnerable children
  • Monthly team meetings

asphaleia fostering is part of the asphaleia group, an organisation dedicated to impacting the lives of children and young people. We offer care accommodation, education and fostering services, as well as consultancy and our charity, asphaleia action. Our foster carers are considered part of the asphaleia family and are able to benefit from the range of provision we offer to young people, as well as the knowledge and experience of the team.

    Foster care services

    When a child or young person is taken into care, the first priority is to support their family so they can go back home safely. But for some it just isn’t possible. At Cabrini, we find a new home for the most vulnerable children and young people – where they’re safe and can start to enjoy life again.

    That’s why being a foster carer is so important. You can give a vulnerable child or young person the support they need. You can give them roots and wings.

    Long-term foster care and Cabrini

    Long-term foster care can be a good fit for particularly vulnerable children from the age of seven and up. Many are still close to their birth families, but have had difficult or disrupted lives.

    Cabrini is a charity that provides fostering services for vulnerable children, especially this type of long-term foster care. We have years of experience finding the right home for children and young people, and giving foster families the help they need to offer them the right support.

    What it takes to be a foster carer

    Every child or young person is different – from experiences and ethnicity to personality and interests. So, to find the right match for the children and young people we support, we recruit carers from all walks of life.

    Our foster carers are all ages, singles or couples. They might have professional or therapeutic backgrounds. Or they might be parents whose children have left home. But the main thing we look for is the right skills, attitude and energy to do the job.

    For our foster carers we provide high levels of support and training, a weekly foster payment, and the opportunity to be part of a friendly network of local foster carers and professional social workers. We do have high expectations of our carers, and in return we value and support the important work that they do for children.

    Outlook Fostering Services is an Independent Fostering Agency. We currently provide long term and task centred Foster Carers for more than 30 Local Authorities across London and the Home Counties.

    We provide child-centred, reliable, efficient and cost effective fostering solutions. Our range of placement options includes:

    • Parent and child assessments
    • Bridging placements
    • Solo placements (where there are no other children within the household)
    • Task Centred placements
    • Long term placements
    • Permanency options

    Before placement, we carry out a full matching assessment to ensure that the best foster care solution is found. This process works. Over 70% of our looked after children stay with their carers on a long term basis.

    We work closely with all Agencies involved and become part of the professional team formed when a child is identified as needing support. This allows us to develop individual solutions that can be adapted to meet the changing needs of each Foster Parent and child.

    Our staff and Foster Carers follow a programme of continuous professional development enabling us to provide support across a broad range of issues. Our services promote every aspect of a child's life including education, health, culture, religion, sexuality and therapeutic needs. We promote evidence to our commitment to the Every Child Matters outcomes and ensure all of our Looked After Children have the opportunity to:

    • Be healthy
    • Stay safe
    • Enjoy and achieve
    • Make a positive contribution
    • Achieve economic well-being
