Our purpose is to provide stable, caring, family environments in which children and young people will thrive.

Swiis Foster Care, along with our sister company Swiis Foster Care Scotland, is reputed as one of the finest independent Fostering Agencies in the United Kingdom, with Ofsted GOOD awarded to our facilities in Birmingham, Manchester, LancashireLeedsNewcastle and Darlington. Our Swiis Foster Care Scotland service has recently been awarded a 5-6 score rating by the Care Inspectorate.

Our overarching commitment to attaining the best possible outcomes for ‘looked after children’ is reflected by the exceptional retention rates of our children in placement and the excellent educational achievements our children accomplish, which are amongst the finest in the foster care arena.

Within Swiis Foster Care, we believe children are at the heart of everything we do, therefore our service is designed around the five key areas that have been identified by children and young people as making a real difference to their lives:

  • Being healthy
  • Staying safe
  • Enjoying and achieving
  • Making a positive contribution
  • Achieving economic wellbeing

Swiis Foster Care supplies fostering services to Local Authorities across the UK. We have 1st Tier agreements with most of our Local Authority partners giving us and our carers access to a wide range of referred children and young people, which enables Swiis Foster Care to have a genuine opportunity to positively influence the future of looked after children.

“Children and young people benefit from a well-managed, efficient and resilient child focussed fostering service.”
Newcastle Ofsted Report, 2013
