Why Change Fostering Agency?
There are a number of fostering organisations, many of these are impersonal agencies. At By the Bridge, we are big enough to provide a full range of support services but have local offices and teams to provide highly personalised support to Foster Parents.
We believe that every child is different and our therapeutic approach enables us to train our Foster Parents to better understand the children in their care needs.
We are always keen to work with Foster Parents that want to develop their skillset, learn a different way of working and ultimately give the child (or children) in their care the best possible life.
We believe in rewarding our Foster Parents for the amazing work they do. After all, they are the people that make By the Bridge so special.
