South Western

From Bodmin to Bristol, our South Western region has five local offices to ensure you always get the best levels of local fostering support.

Our Taunton head office is situated in an old coach house so it’s packed full of history and charm. You don’t need to worry about finding it though; we’re opposite the Somerset County Hall and just a short walk from the town centre.

Our team

If you visit our head office in Taunton, you’ll be greeted by our Team Administrator Melinda.

Melinda is just the first of many friendly faces you’ll be greeted with when you head to the offices in the South Western region. While our regional team may be spread out, you can be sure of a close knit, family feel.

The team pride themselves on giving all their visitors a hearty welcome and a true family experience – whether you’re visiting for the first time or the hundredth time.

Our offices

Taunton acts as a central hub for all regional gatherings, but there are four other offices that might be a little closer to home. You can find us in Bodmin, Plymouth, Bristol and Gloucester too, so we’re never far away.

The address for the Taunton office is:

Foster Care Associates
Fitzwarren House, 1st Floor Offices, Queen Street
Taunton
Somerset
TA1 3UG

Tel: 01823 352 242
