“Having been a foster carer I have striven to create an agency that I would want to work with, support that is productive and training that is tailored and inspiring.” Rob Edworthy, Registered Manager.
Our ethos of focusing on the needs of those we care for and being like and extended family was noted in our recent Ofsted: 'There is a shared commitment to a strong child-centred approach, which is a thread throughout the agency.'. . . 'Children are at the centre of this agency’s practice. This ethos is underpinned by the agency’s preferred model of care. As a result of the high quality of care provided by the foster carers, children make good progress..'
