Nationwide Association of Fostering Providers

NAFP is the only UK trade association that campaigns solely for independent and voluntary sector fostering providers (IFPs). Every year, IFPs care for more children and their foster carers make a special contribution to the lives of children. NAFP understands their unique role. Our mission is:

To be the voice of the independent and voluntary fostering sector for children and young people, and to promote high standards of professional and business practice within the membership

Membership stands at 74 organisations, representing over 80% of children placed in the independent and voluntary sector across England, Scotland and Wales. Membership is open to all registered independent fostering providers, so join us now - by working together, we will be stronger.
