In the heart of Bristol
Our Swiis Foster Care Bristol service was set up in December 2013 and covers a vast area across the whole of the South East and South West of the UK. Since opening the branch, we have been awarded a top-tier level in the Southwest. Our Swiis Foster Care team in the south is dedicated to delivering an exceptional service with children at the centre of everything they do to ensure positive outcomes for Children and Young People Looked After.
We currently have four local carer groups based in London, Southampton, Devon and Bristol, giving our new foster carers plenty of options for finding a supportive group close to their home.
These groups are for foster carers to get together, share their own experiences with each other and offer support. Support may be an understanding ear, arranging to share transport or helping with childcare. The lead person in each of our local carer groups is called a “buddy” and they are the main contact for the group. Our foster carers really appreciate this service and often make good friends here.
We can adapt to locations and accessibility where necessary for our clients/customers.
Located in the Queens Square area of Bristol City centre on Prince Street, the new South region fully accessible office is purpose built to meet the needs of our foster carers with large meeting rooms and ample parking. Prince Street is easily accessed by public transport.
Situated just outside Exeter with easy access to the M5, the training facility is at a former Georgian Manor.
The training facility for Dorset is at Allendale House which is a Georgian building owned by the East Dorset Heritage Trust. It’s located in a small attractive market town in the heart of Dorset. Easy to get to for those travelling from Southampton, Bournemouth, Poole and Salisbury areas.
