Our Cumbria offices are located to the west of Workington, Cumbria on the Derwent Howe Industrial Estate. Click here for full address details.
Workington is a hub office for our services in Cumbria. There’ll you’ll find:
Loren, our supervising social worker and Viv, our support worker.
Community Foster Care believes in accessible local offices and more importantly easy access to us. This is essential in providing our foster carers with excellent support.
“Carers know that support is available by phone and in person at any time of the day or night. The quality of support is enhanced further by the excellent relationships that supervising social workers and placement support workers have developed with children, young people and foster carers. Many positive comments were received from foster carers during the inspection.”
We have a training facility here, where a lot of our local training and support groups takes place.
Most importantly, we want everyone in our community - from children to trustees - to feel at home here and to feel comfortable dropping in for a cuppa when the mood takes them.
