Hello we’re FCA Northern Ireland, the foster carer’s carer
Our foster carers in Northern Ireland are supported by two regional offices. One in Belfast and one in Derry. This gives you the chance to enjoy round-the-clock support from a team you’re close to, whenever you need it. Monthly support groups, a friendly and familiar team and a real family atmosphere; that’s what welcomes you when you foster in Northern Ireland with FCA.
Our Northern Ireland team also works in partnership with the Health and Social Care Trusts and offers a high level of support to carers throughout the region. We pride ourselves on being flexible, responsive and focussed on the individual needs of each of our carers and placements. We know all our carers by name and invest a lot of time in running monthly support groups to help you stay as one big family.
We have two offices in Northern Ireland.
Our Belfast office is set just off the leafy suburbs of the Belmont Road in a quiet Office Park. Whilst the outside appears professional the ‘hot pink’ entrance immediately provides a sense of warmth and fun. The reception area is bright and colourful and there is a great buzz about the office as people congregate to catch up with the carers and the children.
