At Eastern Fostering Services, we believe we have something special. We’re a small, close knit team and we really (really!) care about what we do. We suppose most foster agencies say that, so here are the things we do that show we’re different. As part of the process of becoming a carer with our Fostering Agency, you’ll get to know us all pretty well. Our carers find it very reassuring to know that someone they know and trust is at the end of the phone at all times if they need them. We’re proud to say that our carer support team has invaluable experience in relevant fields such as social work, child protection and working to support children and parents. As a fosrting agency team we are all united in our passion and commitment to securing positive outcomes for our children. Our carers tell us that they find the knowledge, wisdom and passion shown by the team to be vital in supporting them as carers. We know what it’s like to foster a child and that sometimes you need things to happen yesterday! We can’t work miracles but we do our best to respond to situations quickly. This means we’ll often make home visits at very short notice if that’s what our children and carers need us to do. Our team provide direct and varied therapeutic work with the children to help them tackle specific problems they might have. This work is important to the child first and foremost but is also another way of supporting the carers indirectly.
