The Fostering Company is an independent fostering agency based solely in the North East of England, driven by social workers with a proven track record in fostering. We work with seven North East councils (Northumberland, North Tyneside, Newcastle, Gateshead, South Tyneside, Sunderland and Durham) to provide successful fostering options for children and young people who need them. We are dedicated to helping children and young people by creating supportive, consistent and enriching fostering environments, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The Fostering Company is run on a 'not for profit' model ensuring we invest back into the agency to maintain very high standards of care and to offer additional support for children and carers.
