Fostering in the North East

During the course of 2016, over 1,137 children and young people were referred to FCA by local authorities. This number is rising every year and we need your help to ensure a child or young person in need has a safe, stable and caring home to go to each night. If you are considering foster care and making a difference to these children’s lives, we implore you to get in touch with us today.

It’s in our name, Foster Care Associates North East. Care – that’s what we pride ourselves on doing well. Our staff and carers are a committed team who work hard to ensure that the best levels of care and support are given to our children and young people, so that they can progress and achieve their potential.

Where you can foster in the North East

With two offices in the North East, you are never too far away from our dedicated team of social workers. When you foster with FCA North East you’ll not only benefit from our excellent local support and training – you’ll have the opportunity to help us shape it too.

As a foster carer with FCA North East, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to participate in and influence our work because we encourage our carers to have a say on key issues and decisions that affect them and their families. By developing our services together, we believe we can make an even bigger difference to the lives of the children and young people in our care.

If you want to make a difference then get in touch with us today. You can call our friendly team on 0800 023 4561 or complete our online enquiry form.
