Fostering People, the Independent Fostering Agency, celebrates
its 10 year anniversary in September this year, following a decade of
The Nottingham based fostering agency will be hosting a
range of activities and events to mark the occasion, drawing together foster carers,
looked after children and young people, birth children and staff.
The main event, a special celebratory day to be held in September, has been
organised by a focus group at Fostering People. Along with a range of games and
activities, the day will host special long service awards for young people, carers
and staff who have been with the agency throughout its duration.
The 10 year anniversary marks a significant milestone in the company's development.
Originally set up to provide fostering services in the East Midlands, the agency has
since expanded to offer its services across Central England, the North West and the
North East of England. To date, Fostering People has over 115 foster carers
registered with them, with over 190 children and young people in placements.
Its growth has been recently boosted by the launch of a new carer recruitment
focussed website, providing an extended amount of information about fostering
children and targeted at recruiting foster
carers across Central and Northern England. The website also supports the agency’s
ongoing expansion to provide a service for fostering in Manchester.
On the 10 year anniversary celebrations, John Platt, Fostering People Operational
Manager, commented: "We are delighted with how the plans are taking shape for our
10 year celebrations - it is a culmination of a lot of hard work by our carers and
staff. We want to plan an event that our young people and everybody else involved in
the organisation will enjoy."
There are already considerable plans in place for further expansion over the
forthcoming decade, as John Platt explained: "We have really positive plans for the
future. Fostering People is a growing agency because we work hard to provide a
quality service for Local Authorities, in order to improve outcomes for children and
young people. We are very excited about what we can achieve - we have plans to
utilise modern technology, including digital media, to move us forwards. As we look
to build upon our foundations of the last 10 years, we aim to go from strength to
The 10 year anniversary celebrations complement the agency's ongoing carer
recruitment campaign, in a bid to plug the gap in the shortage of foster carers in
England, as well as other roles such as Form F Assessors.
