Acorn House Fostering is a well established independent fostering agency committed to delivering unrivalled care and support packages that make a real difference to young people's lives. Our approach to fostering places the child’s needs and outstanding 24 hour support for our foster carers firmly at the centre of what we do and we have developed the service to fit around their needs. Our social work teams have extensive experience of working within fostering services and provide an effective service for children and foster carers. We are looking for foster carers in the North West, West Midlands, Yorkshire and North East who can provide placements on a short term, long term, parent and child and respite basis for children between 5 and 18 including unaccompanied asylum seekers. Foster carers receive a generous allowance, much of which is tax free. Children are at the heart of all we do, and by supporting our foster carers, we support our young people to achieve positive outcomes, meet their aspirations and fulfil their goals. We do this through providing regular supervision, local training and social events for carers, their own birth children and the young people they care for.
