Our Values & Mission

A world in which every child feels safe and supported by nurturing foster parents who encourage and enable them to reach their full potential.

Foster Care Matters is a not-for-profit fostering agency,
making children matter. We aim to:

  • To provide safe, caring and supportive homes for children and young people requiring foster care.
  • To develop a supportive and nurturing fostering service that treats its foster parents with respect and understanding with an emphasis on well-being.
  • To be a driver of positive change in the fostering sector through excellent practice and collaboration with other not-for-profit services to increase the number and quality of foster placements available to Local Authorities outside the profit-based sector.
  • To offer trauma-informed support and training to our foster parents to help children recover from their trauma and past losses and achieve their potential.
