A message from our CEO, Jo August.
At Foster Care Associates (FCA) we take the health and safety of our children and young people, foster families and employees very seriously. Following Government advice as a precautionary measure, from Monday 23rd March we have decided to close all of our offices until further notice. We believe that we all have a role to play in helping to stop the spread of this virus.
However, FCA remains OPEN. We want to let you know that we have creative continuity plans in place across our organisation and all aspects of our day to day operation. Work with our foster families and local authority colleagues continues and our dedicated team are committed to providing you with our very best support during this difficult and challenging time.
We are continuing to recruit foster parents, as the needs of children and young people remains our priority. If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, our online enquiry forms and phone lines remain open. You will still receive the same great level of service you’d expect from us.
Thank you for being part of the FCA family and stay safe.
