During the course of 2016, FCA Thames Valley received over 2,066 referrals of children and young people from local authorities. These children and young people are looking for a safe, stable and caring home to call theirs. If you can help lower these numbers, get in touch with us today.
As a region we cover the Thames Valley geographical area from Oxford and Reading to Bedford and Luton to Milton Keynes and Hertfordshire. Our head office is situated in Wendover and is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Chilterns and not too far from the home of Roald Dahl. We also have an office in Woodley and have support groups and training for carers available in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.
Fostering training and support in Thames Valley
In order to support our foster carers and children in the best possible way we have a group of highly skilled social workers, therapists and support workers who are brimming with experience and knowledge. We are proud to be the only agency in the country whose fostering is truly founded on research based practice. In 2016 Professor Helen Cosis-Brown from The Rees Centre for Research developed a set of knowledge exchange seminars which have shaped practice in the region.
Foster with FCA
We pride ourselves on how well we look after our children and ensure we have a good time in the process which is why you will always find something happening, whether it be for our looked after children, birth children or foster carers. We place our children at the centre of what we do and they are actively involved in shaping the services we offer with our carers and ourselves.
If you can offer a young person a caring home, then please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
