Why Choose Community Foster Care

Photo of Community Foster Care staff and foster carersCommunity Foster Care is a not for profit foster care agency which provides local placements for local children and  provides foster care in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Swindon, West Cumbria and Lancashire.

Community Foster Care is one of a few agencies in England that is also a registered charity, which means that our resources go into constantly improving the services we offer children who are placed with us.

Our carers have a voice in the future of Community Foster Care, with democratic representation on the Company's Board of Directors through the Foster Carer's Representative.

We are also a social enterprise, providing employment locally and supporting small businesses by using them to provide us with services rather than the larger companies.

We work in partnership with many charities and social enterprises to provide 'added value' to our children and young people and their foster families. This means that fostering with Community Foster Care, families will enjoy regular trips out and have the feel of being in a large family where we all support each other and also have a lot of fun!

We also have a Shadow Board made up of young people fostered with Community Foster Care and we listen to their views about how we can improve our services.
